Win 98 Sound Problem
Posted on 2003-03-10
The Sound Device installs correctly and in device management it shows that its correctly installed. But when I try to play a sound or whatever else uses sound I get an error message saying the device is not available. Now when I look at the bottom right of my screen I dont see the usual yellow sound icon, and when I go to multimedia in the control panel the audio tab is completely grayed out , just as if the device is not installed.
Now I have been reading up on the same kind of error messages in the forums, and I ofcourse tried all the solutions, the one for example that says, go to device management, to go multimedia devices and remove whats in there, shut down the comp, let it stay like that for 10 secs, then start it up and let it detect the sound card again and then all should be right, well I tried that one to, and that one did not work, I have tried all things that I can think of, and I still cant figure out how in the world I can get the sound to work.
So I need help from my fellow computer people, so please, any tips, advice, or better yet, sollutions to this matter are really appreciated.
Hope you can help me with this matter
