No Sound

By tmbearden ·
I recently formatted and installed win 98se on an old pc I am setting up for a back up. Everything works except the sound. The sound or speaker icon does not load in the task tray at the bottom of the screen like it used to do. Any suggestions...this is an old Acer Aopen 166 pentium. Windows detects the hardware but cannot seem to find the driver.

Windows 98 has a very poor set of drivers.

You need to install the correct driver for the sound card or device in the PC.

There are links to Acewr drivers at

Try Acer support first as that will be the "most" compatible driver.

Checked the driver and it is installed. The sound recorder device is not installed in the device manager.
