No sound in Windows 95

  3rdday 22:19 30 Mar 2004

Have just installed Windows 95 on an old PC. It used to have Windows 98 on it, but this has been transferred to another PC. The system speaker definitely worked then and would make the standard sounds, beeps, etc.

Now, I get no sound at all. When I look at the system speaker in Device Manager, it says it is working properly, but when I go into Sounds in Control Panel, it won't let me test any sounds - it says there is no mixer device installed. If I go into Multimedia in Control Panel and select Audio Devices, the Properties button is greyed out, suggesting that there aren't any. I don't want to install a sound card - I don't need fancy sound, so has anyone any ideas what's wrong?

You likely need to install the drivers for the sound chip which is built into the mobo; do you know what kind of mobo you have?

Not sure about the motherboard, but the PC as a very old Comapq Deskpro 4000, so it could be Compaq's own as I think they used to make their own back then.

Found the audio drivers on the Compaq website and it now works!
