Have you installed any new application or hardware installation recently before you are facing the issue.

If Yes, do uninstall the application recently from add /remove programs

else restore the system to previous state by navigating to start-> all programs->accessories->system tools ->system restore

If the issue persists, kindly let me know

You need to reinstall the sound card driver, go onto the Dell website and you can download it from there.

I disconected sound card and can`t find how to turn on the music

Did you remove the sound card from the PC entirely? If you did, and there are no on-board sound devices (most computers do have them, although they are notorious for going bad), then you'll never be able to get sound from your computer without re-inserting the sound card.

When you re-insert the sound card, assuming it worked before, Windows will automatically install the drivers for you, and you'll have audio again.

If you do have an on-board sound device, and have reformatted your hard drive (or otherwise put it into a condition where you won't have the drivers for it), you'll need to go to the computer manufacturer's website and download the audio driver. Most of these are .exe's that will take care of it all for you. When you restart, you'll have sound.

My advice is to just put your sound card back in.

Although, I am curious why you took it out...?

Your first line stated the obvious; the PC can run 2 cards, but the G4 cannot. The Mac, although a 'PC' has significant hardware differences with an IBM derrved PC.

No sound from computer although it says the device is working properly!

Have you checked it's plugged in the correct location? Is the power on your speakers on? What is the model of your sound card? What is the model of your motherboard? Which Operating System version are you working with? Have you checked Device Manager for driver related issues?

My ped drive kingston datatraveller 4gb doesnot work in win98

I think you will find that the card works fine but your computer doesnt recognise the card reader properly. Windows 98 does not properly recognise most usb devices but Windows 98SE does although I am not sure if it will recognise usb2 properly.

Computer wont read any device installed

if you have more than 1 audio card you have to tell your computer which parts of the various cards to use for different purposes.

you need to go into control panel and check your sound and multimedia settings, you should then be able to "steer" your computer into using the correct devices
