    IBM ThinkPad 600E with a Crystal CS4239 onboard sound chip running Windows
    98SE. I clean installed Win98 and installed the CS4239 drivers with no
    luck. I tried a couple of different driver versions and still no luck.
    Then I flashed the BIOS and it worked! But within a couple months, without
    making any changes to my sound configuration, it doesn't work again. Device
    manager notes no problems or resources conflicts.

    Any ideas? They are all greatly apprecited - thank you.

    Could be just a dead card. It happens sometimes.

    How could I test to see if it was the onboard chip that died?

    Remove it from the device manager and see if it's redetected.
    That would be a pretty good clue if it's working or not. It could be
    something as "simple" as a broken plug for the speaker.
