Sometimes when you reinstall Windows 98, some of the device drivers files get overwritten. Since you identify the ethernet card and sound as problems. Delete those drivers in Device Manager and reboot. Windows will reload them. You may want to have the drivers' disks near by if Windows ask for them.

>> How do put all my network settings back? <<

you can reinstall the network using the network wizard once the ethernet card driver is reinstalled.

First you need to find the drivers for the nic card and the sound card if you still have original cd's when you bought the computer it should have a cd restore to get your drivers. You can also go to computer home page (compaq) (Dell) (gateway) to get drivers alot of computer homepages have the original drivers that came with computer, most will have updated drivers. Once you have them installed then you can go to network wizard to set up your network.

<just a remark>

The_Computer_Guru_777,
The driverguide is a place where anyone posts any drivers or what-are-not-drivers, so it is a "use at your own risk" place. I would personally suggest it to any Asker when I'm sure that there is the right driver to Askers problem card (I query about Askers card first, download the appropriate driver form driverguide, check for viruses and then suggest to go to the site).

Second: The site has a free and no-spam sign-up procedure, just to be sure to track users for their good/bad comments or for virus-uploads (just like as EE). Giving away their user and pass here is morally wrong I think.

Sincerely,
MoNsPoT

Hi guys,
Im terribly sorry for not replying sooner, i have been pre-occupied by multiple taks, and I am still trying to complete them, but anyway back to the question, the ETHERNET controller, was not working, because of the drivers, yes... thank you Monspot and Guru, but the software for my internet router was not installed. All these tasks I tried. However one last thing was in order:
The run command and exe, winipcfg attributes still needed to be reset, once i was finished with the drivers and software and this completely slipped my mind, so thank you all for you help, i can assure you it was very much appreciated.
There was no correct answer to my question, but the closest and most help was Guru, so Ill be awarding him the points, BUT ill also leave 10 point for everyone else, including: war1, monspot and Rcorn8559.
Thank you guys,
--Philozare--

Philozare,
   I know you accepted the answer from www.driverguide.com. Just a warning. The drivers there are put up be individuals. They could be good or bad. Uploading a bad driver could make things worst. So be careful when you are using the drivers there.
