    Hi,
    I'm currently having many problems with my computer, one of which is sound. I can't play any audio (ie mp3s, aol sounds, windows startup sound...). For some reason, I no longer have the speaker icon on the bottom right. When I go to my control panel it says "No device selected" and it is grayed out so I cant click. My speakers are set up correctly, and I know this because when I tried a DVD in my DVD-ROM drive, I heard sound. Could anybody help me? I'm running Windows 98.
    My email address if you would like to email me regarding my problem
