I recently reformatted my "frankenstein" IBM-compatible computer (built from scratch) and am having several problems. I reinstalled Windows 95, but the option to "mute" the sound is no longer there when I click on the "horn" on the start bar. My monitor is also a little screwy... I no longer have the option to change the screen to anything other than 600 x 800 or 640 x 480. (Not that I use anything other than 600 x 800, but it's concerning.) I checked the devices, and it's telling me that the Soundblaster sound card is working properly... Another issue I have after reformatting is that I can no longer play MP3s on Windows Media player. It's the same version - what might be causing this?

Thanks for any help..... it's really appreciated.

Hiya

Well, I'm gonna take things one at a time.

For the MP3 question: Open up your Windows Media Player. Which version is it? Anyway, if its 6.4, try this

View | options | Foramt tab. Are all the boxes ticked? if not, do so, apply and OK. Try it now.

If that dosen't work, have a look here.

For the Mute bit, Rigtclick on the icon and choose Open Volume Controls. Options | Properties. Are all the boxes checked? If not, do so, and see if any of the Mute boxes are there after.

Do you have up to date video drivers? What is the name of your card?

Regards

eddie
