Supply a web link to MSI's web site so we can verify you got the right motherboard and such drivers.
System speaker is not working, no audio in any media device, no volume control. Music CDs will play sound because they pass through to the external speakers and cd player is working. Selecting Soundman or volume control does nothing.
I am running windows 98se I installed a new mainboard MIS 661fm3-v is has realtel AC'97 audio on board. During the installation I lost audio. DEVICE MANAGER shows drivers installed and working properly. In MULTIMEDIA PROPERTIES the drivers show up ok under the DEVICES TAB and the 'use features on this device' box is selected. They do not show up under the AUDIO TAB and the show volume control box is checked but grayed out.
Self test on DirectX9 says audio drivers not found.
I have removed and reinstalled multimedia and audio from add remove programs. I have removed and reinstalled the AC97 drivers. I have downloaded and inatalled the latest Realtek drivers.
How can MULITMEDIA show the drivers under the devices tab but not under the audio tab? What can I do about this?
I am looking at *.ini files but do not know what to look for.
Could this be a problem in user.dat? If so what to do?
The more I learn the less I know.
