Hope I'm in the right place.
I have 98SE installed on a MS6315 ver5 board (chipset 815E) with onboard sound. I cannot get sound working. System says I have MPU-401 compatible 'working properly' but multimedia properties shows no device. I've tried chipset setup and mpu-401 drivers with no success. I'd appreciate guidance, please.

Did you try re-installing the motherboard drivers from the disk that came with the machine?

Thanks for this. The PC was a business cast-off that I refurbished for charity, therefore no disks. I download required setups from the Net, usually. I only put 98SE on it because its new - educationally impaired - owner wanted it as it is familiar to him. Anyway, it took longer than usual to find a sound driver that worked but I have now succeeded. I'll mark this one solved.
Thanks again.
