My son is trying to play Halo. Graphics are fine but no sound. But when checking Dxdiag in sound i get the error

Failure at step19 (user verification of software)
HRESULT = 0*00000000 error code

I'm using Windows98se and DirectX 9b

Can anyone help please, as my son seems to think i can fix anything (as if)and it would be nice to be able to tell him the answer

check all you drivers mainly for your VGA/AGP display & Audio oh and the Chipset Driver.
Also is the Halo game designed for ATI/Matrox and Nvidia only and not Sis Chipset graphics ? It will say on the box
