Not sure what happened but I can't get any sound from my computer. I have sound card and it has worked before. I'm not sure if I deleted a file or something but do you have any ideas what may have caused this? Some of the files that could not be found were 'cmaudio.cat' and 'cmmpu.exe'. It asked me to put in 98 cd rom but still could not find.

Can you go into Start > Settings > Control Panel > System > Hardware > click Device Manager - then click Sound and look for any red or yellow marks ... either ! or ?

Also what sound setup have you got ? Is it a dedicated s/card or a sound controller on the motherboard ? And in the event you need it, do you still have the appropriate CD to reinstal sound drivers ?

If you post back with what you find in Device Manager, could you also include info on your particular soundcard and your motherboard. That way someone here can suggest a way to resolve this - and if necessary help locate drivers online if you no longer have the CD.

No red or yellow in device manager. Has three different items listed: pci audio device, gameport joystick and wave device for voice modem. I think the sound system that was built with this system is 'HRTF 3D'. it supports both direct sound 3D and A3. It did come with a System Board cd rom pc100, v7.3b1. Can I reinstall the sound card thru the cd?

Yes you can try reinstalling the drivers. It won't hurt anything , as well check the system volume and make certain the speakers are plugged in correctly and powered on.
