After installing "Buzz Lightyear" for my students, the sound has disappeared from my Win 98 pc. The volume icon at the bottom of the screen is even gone. The sound will no longer work with ANY programs nor will it work when I choose "settings" and desktop themes and try to hear the sounds I had previously set.

Should I run my RESTORE cd and will it wipe out everything that is currently on my hard drive?

Disappointed third graders
Thanks for reading.

Go to start>settings>control panel>multimedia>audio tab>make sure the box at the bottom for "show volume Icon" is checked. If it isnt, put a check in it then go to the icon in the systray, right click and choose open volume controls. Check to see if volume control is muted.

If it is checked already in multimedia, right click my computer>choose properties>device manager>expand the sound and see if you have any ! or ?.

Thank you very much. I have fixed the sound problem with your help. It appears that the sound device was disabled after uninstalling another program. I was able to reboot and let Win find the sound device and re install it.
