Question about Microsoft Windows 98 for PC

1 Answer

Win 98 has a key on screen

The key on the screen has a 2-5 digit code that I can not crack! It will not start up normally & it is not hooked up to the internet.

    It turns on now but no sound card. Any ideas how to restore the sound??

  • yocma Feb 11, 2008

    The sound card must be in the CPU. I have an IBM Aptiva E series 245 AMD K6-2 Processor 64MB / expands to 256 MB

    I hope this helps you help me. It runs now but no sound.

    It just decided it was gonna work today after 2 weeks with no sound & showing as no sound card installed. Thanks for all your help. I did check your suggestion & all plus signs were active, not any exclaimation marks. Thanks again!

What type of soundcard do you have? Is it onboard, if so what motherboard is it?

    Ok if you boot windows and go in to your control panel, click on system settings then device manager. Are there any hardware errors? They will be marked with a exclamation mark, if so try selecting the device and choose to update the driver. If this doesn't work or there are no conflicts let us know and I will try again.

Here's what I would do... go to eBay and buy a new Win 98 CD for under $20 (some as low $12) and use that key. You might try Craigslist as well. It's a cheap solution and completely legitimate.
