Cornon, Have You Checked?..

...the various manufacturer's websites? To determine the required devices and their drivers, on Windows 98, RIGHT click on "My Computer", choose "Properties", then click on the "Device Manager" tab. Click on the + signs next to each device type and you'll see the specific device listed. Highlight the device, then click on the "Properties" button at the bottom. When the Device Properites" window loads, click on the "Driver" tab, then write down the "Manufacturer/Providers" name, the driver date and the driver version. Now visit the "Manufacturer/Providers" site and download and install the driver.

You should be able to find information about the last two at the C-Media and the Intel sites.

Hope this helps.

Driver site for you

If you get the information from Mr. Thomas' previous post, it may be easier to go to to get your drivers. They tend to deal with a lot more of the older type drivers like Win98.

You have to register and they will send you an email with
a user name and password.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
