No sound but from audio CD!

By gventura ·
I have a clone computer running windows 98 with a ESS 1868 sound card producing no sound but out of a music CD.
I have replaced this card with a soundblaster (good card) to verify the card and I have the same problem. I have also replaced motherboards, as it's been a lingering issue, to no avail. Could there be an issue with the hard drive?

Thanks for your help.

make sure that your driver is installed correctly, and also take a look to see if the card is hooked up properly and that one wire connected from your cd rom to your sound card if everything is connected properly go on the internet and find the correct driver and then remove the old driver and reinstall the new driver

A client has this problem recently. Turns out that the volume was muted in the Volume Control. Check this out. In addition, you may want to try a different audio cable (the one from the CD-ROM to the sound card). If you have change the sound cardand replaced motherboards, then the problem sure seem to software related. You may also want to check for the latest drivers for the ESS card.

Boy I wish it were that easy, I've checked it million times and downloaded the latest driver.

Thanks

Question: Go into Control Panel, MultiMedia, Devices tab. When you look at the Properties for the devices under Audio devices, MIDI devices, Mixer devices, and Line Input devices, do they all have a status of "Device is enabled and functioning properly"?

Hi,

Can you tell me what devices you can see in the device manager under sound, video and game controllers ? Are there any unknown devices ?

Kind regards,
Jangb
