Seem to be unable to reload my headset. Whilst running under Windows 98 system crashed and many files were deleted before we got going again. Now the Device Manager show "unknown device" and cant find the right file. No disc came with the original installation and the file was automatically identified by the Windows operating system. Now it wont or cant find it. can anybody suggest a few ideas?

Try booting to safemode and delete the "unknown device" from the device manager. Then reboot to normal mode and it should be reïnstalled automatically.

Thanks for the comment. You might be interested to know that the problem was an intermiitent fault within the usb plug. I fixed it reinstalled the headset and now it works fine but here's the curious thing. Having deleted the "unknown device" and  cleared registers, on rebooting it came up with found new hardware but again could'nt identify the device. I ran a device identifier program which showed up Labtec. Checked all hardware and everything seems to be installed and OK. Only can surmise there must be some kind of corrupted file in the Windows 98 system

Anyhow thanks again for your help

You can try sorting that out by using the system file checker:

Start=>Run=>type "SFC /scannow" (without the quotes) and press enter.
