Download and run SIW click here, let us know the make and model of your motherboard, it should also tell you the name of the sound chip.

What name does it give for the motherboard, kimosabi?

  kimosabi 21:38 10 Apr 2007

Thats the only info there is besides the cpu info

There should be a motherboard tab there, kimosabi, but I'm almost sure that this is the correct driver click here you'll have to signup for a free account but it's fairly painless.

At last got all the sounds working biggest problem was the cdrom music played but no sound but ok. Now the problem is that It plays a track for a few seconds then jumps to the next track and so on.This happens on both D&E drive I have tried the music cds in my laptop they play ok.Is this A rom drive prob they were ok befor I formated and reinstalled win98e Your advice will be welcomed

Hi kimosabi, yes I remember that problem, what's causing it is that your media player is set to only play the intros. It plays the first then skips to the next, then the next and so on to the end of the CD. For the life of me I can't remember the setting to get back to normal play, but it's in there somewhere, check the options/preferences in the media player. Which media player and version of media player are you using?

Thanks for coming back.Yes I did see somthing about intros in the setting but I did not know what to do about it I will have a look tomorrow and I will let you know the results
best regards
