After it's fully charged the battery only lasts for about an hour, is this normal?

No it looks like your bettery is deplating and not holding its charge, its usually an indication of a need for a new bettery. Your bettery cells are dying.

My sons windows 98 seems to have lost its ability tp play sound. I have installed the pci sound card and drivers that came with it but under controll panel/multimedia the audio sound card is grayed off as if there is no sound card. Device manager indicated that all sound card are ready to go, no exclamation marks there, so whats happend here, am I missing something? I used to win xp now and have actually forgotton what else is reqiires aor to look for. Its a C-Media card.

If the Laptop is fairly new, It may just be a low power Battery or if the Laptop is only a Cheap Tosh it may have a Desktop CPU in it, they run faster cost less but run the battery down fast
