Sound problem in Win98

    I have reinstalled Win98 on a old Pentium 200 system. I reinstalled the
    Xwave 4000 drivers for the sound card. The windows sounds do not work as
    well as the sounds from games. But if I insert a audio CD the sound works
    fine. Under harware properties everything appears fine. There are no
    conflicts at all. If I open the mixer there is nothing muted.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance

    you still have driver problems. Either the incorrect driver, or they didn't
    install properly. Try removing them, and reinstalling.

    Thanks for the reply Thor.

    What I have tried so far.
    The card is a Xwave 4000. tried the drivers that came with the card. No go.
    Downloaded drivers would not decompress so will try downloading again.
    Tried card in 3 different PCI slots. Still no go.
    Uninstalled and reinstalled drivers about 5 times. No go. Even tried the
    ALS 4000 drivers but same thing.

    Any more ideas.

    Thanks in advance.

    beyond trying the downloaded drivers again, or taking it to a professional
    tech for hands-on troubleshooting, no. Something is corrupt in the sound
    driver installation.

    Try buying a new sound card, The SB16 is about 19.00. Try to stay away
    fron the cheap soundcards. I had the als4000 and is was garbage. Took it
    back and get the new soundblaster audigy no problems.

    good luck
