    I've got EP-8K7A+ mobo with on-board AC97 sound chip, running Windows
    98SE. It looks like I might have lost the chip. I see the exclamation
    sign in the Device Manager(no sound of course). I tried to uninstall
    the drivers, disable the chip, enable the chip and install the drivers
    again but it didn't help. Any ideas.
    Thank you.

    what would have been the cause of the chip being gone?
    Is there any 'other devices' in device manager?
    is there a resource conflict shown?

    As long as there aren't driver conflicts from recently installed devices,
    or some sort of short on the speaker-out side, then it looks like you need
    a call to customer support for a replacement.

    I don't know what happen to the chip. I thought the driver became
    corrupted but reinstalling the driver would solve the problem. It
    All of my other devices work correctly, there's never been a conflict.
    I'll send e-mail to Epox.
    Thanks for your responses.

    Check in BIOS that someone hasn't been fiddling and disabled the onboard
    sound there.

    Try restarting in Safe-mode and delete everything sound related in device
    manager there, and then do a re-install. I was surprised, after scratching
    my head over a board a while back, to find that there were 4 instances of
    everything AC97 related in 98SE Safe-mode that did not show in regular time.
