After installing Windows 98SE, my computer now has no sound. Not even an icon on the toolbar. I have no way to get to the master control. When I turn the computer on or when I am on-line playing a game I cannot get any sound. I cannot play any music I have saved on my hard drive. However, I am able to play a cd and that works fine. Under Multimedia properties, Audio tab, everything is greyed out. It has playback, then it says no playback devices. Recording, no recording devices. I checked under Device Manager, Sound, Video and Game Controllers and it lists...Crystal Audio Codec, Crystal Audio Codec Game Device, Gameport Joystick and MPU-401 Compatible. When I check under properties, they all say "this device is working properly". Can anybody help me with this problem?

It could be that the volume controller (sndvol32.exe) is missing or corrupt.

That's the only option I can think of. :confused:
