: : My friend has Windows 98,in which the sound card (No sound)is not working.I First went to START/PROGRAMS/ACCESSORIES/ENTERTAINMENT OR MULTIMEDIA,clicked on the Volume control(which is checked in the windows setup)nothing happened. I can not find the Volume Slider control (I think usually on the taskbar)When I went to DEVICE MANAGER,/SOUND,/PROPERTIES,I noticed two(2)yellow exclaimation marks.Somewhere in my travels in his system I noticed an error message telling me it was missing a(MMDEVLDR.VXD)device loader.

: : QUESTION: By downloading the sound card from www.driverguide (OpTi audio 16 an .exe file ,will this in itself be able to load everything he needs for sound? Or do I have to download this device driver too?
: I have not had a chance to check out his Motherboard as of yet to see if it is a Onboard,or an added ISA/PCI soundcard.Is the OpTi 16 a 16 bit? DAAAAA...(16,32,64,etc)would it be feasible to install a brand new 32 bit soundcard from Inland,or Creative Blaster 16 would be fine? Thank you all, for any replies to this problem.I appreciate the help! I did not know if there would be a conflict with the Bios/motherboard. bozo
: Thanks, Jim
