It would help if we knew what version of Windows you were running.

Are you saying that in Control Panel, there is no Sounds link?

Trying to remember my W98. . .

I'm now running XP, but try this. Open Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs, and click (I think) add/remove Windows components. Search through the list and look for sounds.

If you go to Control Panel and Add/Remove hardware then click the middle tab at the top... After that check the multimedia box and press okay, that should fix your problem.
