I am facing a problem in win98 that my win can not play any sound else win defaults sounds like win start,exit,login,logoff etc.
and there is no playback sound but sound driver is working properly.
Looking for good regard.

Have you loaded other sounds onto the HDD? If so, go to the default Win sounds, pick one and choose "browse". Then find one of your sounds and see if it plays it then. If it does, check the volume controls for .WAV files and all the other media volume types existing on the sound panel. If it won't play it. Then make sure your file type is correct. Win98 typically will not play MP3, and some other sound file types without third-party add-on software.

Post again if this doesn't help, and we'll figure it out.

Try inserting a musci CD and see if it plays, if so, you know your sound card is working.

Upgrade your Windows Media PLayer and see if it helps by addig codecs.
