    I just put a new hard drive in my daughter's computer and I installed all the drivers. The manual says to let windows 98 install it's sound drivers as they are the correct ones and they worked. My problem is that I am not getting sound from the Cd-Rom. I have attached the audio cable and am able to hear music when I put in an audio CD. I hear the windows sound when I boot up and I can hear sound from any sound file I execute from the hard drive. The only sound I don't get is if I put in a CD that has other sound. For example,I have a CD that has pictures on it which my daughter made up and put sound to and played on this computer before,that now doesn't play. Also,the sounds on games don't play. and I have a tribute with sound that doesn't play.I have tried another CD-Rom drive that I removed from my computer and it's still the same problem. I have consulted some tech guys from the manufacturer and they have not helped. One told me that I had to install the midi and synthesizer drivers which I did and am still at square one. I have a feeling this is a simple solution except I don' know what it is. Hoping somebody here can help and thanking you in advance, I am, Pat Napolitano.

    Have you opened the volume control icon in the lower right hand corner of the screen?
