    Hi there,

    Silly question time i think.....

    Setting up my mates new computer last night, everything working fine apart from no sound coming out the speakers.... Now at the back of the computer is the slot where you would conect your speakers so i presumed this is a sound card??

    But when i carried out a Belarc review and under 'Multimedia' it was blank.

    I'm confused :confused:

    nope, it was just a tower with no operating system. I installed the operating system. Did a check to see what sound card it was to try and download the drivers... by having the slots in the back does that not necessarily mean there's a sound card then??

    Thank you for responding.

    Simply enough, I think my WIN98SE setup cd is missing a crucial file...
    I have no sound...
    After re-installing WIN98SE, I received the following message:

    C:\window\system\precopy

    (file was not found)
