There are a number of sound chipsets for Win 95, Realtek, Via, Cirrus Logic, and others. If you have a Packard -bell computer, they have their own special sound/modem combo drivers. No other drivers will work on the P-B's. Go download a hardware ID program like Everest free home edition, Aida32, or HWinfo32 to see if they can identify your sound chipset. Looking on the motherboard, at the chipsets, you may find who made the chipset. The only other choice here is to find a used good sound card and install it.

Of course if you bought the computer with Windows 95 originally on it, its most certainly going to have a sound card, as one of the launch angles for Windows 95 was increased emphasis on the Multimedia side of things, even sticking music videos on the CD-ROM. If the computer was upgraded to Win95 from Windows 3.1, it may not have a sound card in it. So before you go hunting for a sound card driver, verify that you do actually have a sound card, strange as it may seem these days to have a computer with no sound as standard.
