    After system crashed, got it restored but all my MIDI and WAV files are missing, I cannot play CD's or any system sounds.
    It seams that everything regaurding sound has been wiped out. I have tried reloading windows 98 and have tried to reinstall sound card but nothing seams to bring back sound.
    i have gotten error message of there is not hardware or something but I am running out of ideas. Any help would be appreciated

    We need to know the model / brand of your sound card before we can start to help.

    You said your WAV files are missing? You did a Start, Find, Files for *.WAV and *.MID and nothing shows up?

    I searched for WAV files and they are there.
    I also looked at audio devices and mix devices and midi devices, it says that there are no devices installed. I think this may be the problem. I will try taking out the sound card and reinstalling again also so i may get the model and make of sound card

    I have reinstalled and now sound is back. I have done this 4 times before but I guess this time was the charm. I thank you for you help and suggestions. I must have been doing something wrong before. Thanks again.
