I recently installed win 98 on my digital PC5510 which has ondoard sound and internal speaker USRobotics external modem. Changed nothing else now no sound and all downloads and internet pathetically slow. What shall I check to correct. TONY

I would check MY COMPUTER>CONTROL PANEL>SYSTEM ,
have a look to see if you have any yellow exclamation marks anywhere which could signify a conflict of some kind, click on sondcard entry and remove soundcard from system. Then reboot and let windows pick up soundcard and reinstall, then do the same with modem, or you may need to look in the bios as the soundcard is on board.

Hope this helps

I have already done most of the standard checks .The sound is on board and I have checked that it is enabled in the BIOS.
Rebooted many times but no effect. Upgraded Internet explorer to IE6 but this made no differance. Installed VAG antivirus but this would not accept update.The DUN shows 45000bps.but this is not evident outlook express takes weeks to download emails.
Any more ideas?
