    Try http://www.driverguide.com as well. Usually with AC97 audio, the drivers are included with the mainboard. Can you download them from the manufacturer's website?

    You would probably be better off searching through these forums for sound related issues rather than reporting them one by one as you come across them - there are several things that this could be and it's likely most have been covered here.

    If you really don't know that much about the basics of Windows 98, it could be worth picking up a copy of Windows 98 for Dummies - Amazon.co.uk are selling used copies for as little as 55p.

    PS: using your shift key occasionally would make your posts a lot easier to read.
