no start up sound w/ win98

By ddotson ·
How can I restore my audio with win98? I can up a cd in my drive and get audio, but when I start the computer there is no sound and when I try to play my mp3's there is no sound. I know there is probaly a driver missing but I don't know which one. I've tried everything.

Go to Windows setup in Add/Remove programs & remove & reinstall Multimedia - For reinstall select Have disk option. There maybe a corruption in the codex.

There are several reasons why this could be happening. First thing you need to do is backup any important data you have on the PC. Next make sure you have the software and drivers for your sound card. You got these with the PC or you can download them from the PCs or sound cards manufactures web site. Check in the control panel under multimedia to ensure nothing is muted. Check the sounds and themes applets also to ensure everything is set right, you may just need to select a sound for startup(you can find instructions under help, sound). Next check your device manager for and yellow !!! under multimedia. If you see a yellow ! you need to reinstall multimedia software. Right click on the !'s and choose remove. Restart the PC and install drives that PnP asks for. If this doesn't work check the manufactures instructions on how to install their software because different sound devices have different install packages.

Start >--> Settings >--> Control Panel

Find the Sounds ICON, Double Click, to Display Sound Property
At the Events, Find Windows, Start Windows. Click on it.
At the sound if the Name is None there is no sounds so Take a Browse, And find your wav file that your want to here every time you start windows. You can customized those events.

Disabling all the sound here can speed up your system a little.

I read some of the answers you got, I am thinking that that people was probably doing the best, but to me they are very extremist, before atempting any of their solutions why don't you try to rigth click on the little icon that is on the butom rightof you screen and choose "OPEN VOLUME CONTROLS: A window will pop-up. See if you do not have a check mark on "WAVE-MP3", if you do uncheck that mark then try again, and no, you have not a missing driver....(good luck)....one more thing if you do notsee that Little Speaker Icon, then go to Start>Programs>Accesories>Entertainment>Volume Control.......and You will see the same pop-up window I'm talking about..........Again good luck.

Go to the Sounds ICON in the Control Panel as suggested and scroll down and select Windows Default Sounds. Nothing too complicated.
