My computer is a Thinkpad 600E running Win 98.

The problem I am having is that every time I restart my computer, I loose my sound. I don't hear anything and when I try to play files in Winamp, the spectrum analyzer will move for about a second and then just stop. I would say that the sound is just freezing up, but i don't hear anything when that happens. I don't even hear my startup wav's. The strangest thing is that when I just shutdown the computer and then power it back on, the sound works perfectly. Does anyone have a clue what is going on?

I don't know what tool I am using to set the sound. I'm not really sure what your refering to. Are you talking about the drivers, the programs that I am trying to run?

Try uninstalling and reinstalling your sound card. Make sure that the sound card is configured right in windows.

Heres the deal. I was having some problems where my sound would quit on me every time that I would restart. So after weeks of looking, I found on the IBM website that win 98 does not work well with WDM drivers. So I attempt to replace them and then something goes wrong. Being the idiot that I am, I screw something up and I don't have any sound at all. Well after pulling out most of my hair, I finally reinstalled the drivers that came with my computer. I'm not sure if I did it right though because now the sound that I did get back is very quiet. I am really getting sick of all the problems my computer is giving me. Can someone help?

Hi and welcome, I've merged both threads so that the complete history is together. You've checked the volume levels in the icon on the task bar?
