Hello,

I have WIN98SE on a Gateway computer. My computer is approx. 8 years old.
Recently, when trying to listen to a downloaded video on Media Player I rec'd a message telling me that my sound device was either not installed, being used in another program or not functioning.

Although I couldn't get sound through MediaPlayer (latest version), I COULD listen to videos on youtube and various websites.

Now I can't hear anything at all and my speakers seemed to have konked out. When I turn on my speakers there is silence, rather than that burst of static. And, the light no longer comes on.

Do I need new speakers or might it be the computer itself, since it's so old? I still have all the discs that came with the computer.

Any suggestions would be appreciated Very Happy
Thank you.

Kate

Hi

The first thing to try is plugging the speakers in to another device to see if they work with that. I am assuming that they have a normal 3.5mm jack to connect to the PC, in which case you can plug them in to MP3 players, radios, etc.

You can download and run Everest to see what sound card you
have.

You may just need to uninstall and reinstall the drivers.

Everest is------->Here

Is it just me,or does my reply seem a tad late ? Shocked
