This PC was donated to a non-profit organization where I volunteer to be distributed to someone in need. The donor must have done a format of C: because it was empty but fontunately they provided the Win98 CD and I was able to get the OS reinstalled. Initially had problems with the modem but by deleting in device manager and readding it through the control panel that was corrected. I decided to make sure the speakers worked ok but they would not work. Did a download of Windows Media Player but when I try to use it no audio device is found. In the device manager I see:
? Other Devices
! PCI Multimedia Audio Device
Properties show a device manage error code 28
I have removed this device in device manager then did an add new hardware in control panel and it rediscovers it but cannot find a driver for it. There was no standalone CD provided for just this device so I was using the Win 98 CD and actually specifying the path: D:\drivers\audio\"xxx" where the "xxx" were the various driver folders with no success.
Anyone have any ideas on correcting this problem. I am sure that if the proper driver is found and loaded the speakers will work. The speakers are Harman/Kardon HK 195. I did a bunch of checking and there are no drivers for the speakers themselves.
