I have suddenly lost ALL sound .......cannot play audio CDs or any WAV file ......when I look for the multimedia icon in my WIN98 control panel it's no longer there .!!!.........I had a "cannot find a device file ...." error last week which I fixed by installing/removing network components, as recommended on the MS Product Support website ...but no other messing with settings has occurred. The WIN98 Help troubleshooter of course points me at the multimedia/sounds icon in control panel ...which just ain't there ..is there any way I can simply restore it with the sounds without messing with .INI files and registries ? The windows sound .WAV files are all still there but none will play ....I get "MMSYSTEM326 No wave device that can play files in the current format is installed" message.
