Ok. Here I am and I really need some help. Some how I do not have any sound. And in my list of devices, there is a yellow "?" by the PCI Multimedia Audio Device. I tried to re-install but it says not found and having a quiet computer is driving be batty! I am a computer ill-literate, so any advice would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Get out the drivers for the card.
Go to Device Manager (the place with the yellow ? icon)
Click on "Multimedia Device" and choose properties.
Click on the driver tab. Chosoe "Reinstall Driver" and point to the path of the drivers.

If it's on a CD, look for a directory on the CD called win9x, drivers, whatever has an INF file with the name of the card usually does it.

Hope this helps, If it doesn't, blame Microsoft.

Try going to ADD/Remove and choose windows setup. Look under Multimedia for volume controls. It might not be there. If not open Control panel and open sounds. One of the tabs shoul dhave an option that reads "show volume icon in systray"
