I am running Win98SE, 128 MB Ram,10GB HDD, with CMedia sound card (Built in to motherboard). Yesterday I could only hear sound very faintly except for Windows sounds accessed through Control Panel, which came through loud and clear. Prior to yesterday, all sound was working OK. I have checked the volume settings in Multimedia with no result. Can anyone help please.........Dave :hotbounce Blessed is he who expects nothing for he shall not be dissapointed!!!
