After I did a fresh install of Windows 98 SE, I installed all the drivers for my devices, including my audio. When I run a program, there is no sound in anything, but when I start Windows 98, the famous Microsoft "Start Windows" theme does play but when my icons load, it abruptly stops. My volume control is all crank up to the max, and nothing is muted. An Everest Report can be supplied if requested.

Please help :tazz: ,

No yellow question marks in device manager for audio? Do you have only one audio device?

Only one audio device, and it is working properly.

You might try looking in Control Panel both in Multimedia and in Add/Remove programs, windows components. It's pretty rare to have the sound not working without it being a device or driver problem. You might for instance have the volume set to zero somewhere.

Do you know what the sound device is? What does Device Manager say? We need more hints here. Also, don't forget, a lot of things fall under "other devices".

Problem solved. I ran Windows Update, and they had a patch for "Microsoft Audio Components". Fixed it right up. Thank you guys for your responses.
