no sound on new machine

  Tony uk 20:34 05 Oct 2004

Hi all,
I've just got a new machine for my daughter to have in her bedroom " she's 8 " no net access just to get used to computers and play a few small games.
Its a compaq intel i810 - dc100 5oomhz 192 mb ram
it had no operating system on it so i put win 98 on it,it installed a treat but,with no graphics drivers or sounds drivers.

I've managed to find the correct graphics driver and they work a treat,but i can't find the audio drivers anywhere,i've been searching google for hours now.

No sound what so ever and no idea where to find the drivers HELP please.

Thanks in advance Tony
