Bruce, Playing sound files and Audio CD's are two different tasks that might have different resolutions. Have you checked the device manager for problems with the device itself? The first thing you want to know about problems playing CD's is whether or not you have the audio cable plugged into your motherboard. There is a cable that runs from the CD drive to the motherboard and if that is not plugged in you will not be able to hear CD's through your speakers. A good way to test this is to plug a headset into the CD player. Can you hear the CD' playing? If so, then the cable is your problem. That said, the next thing you want to look at is your advanced sound properties. Double click on the speaker icon in your system tray. When the volume control comes up, check the menu options for "Advanced" options. Look for anything that is muted or has volume turned all the way down.

I went to the Windows 98 help section and clicked on sound troubleshooter. I then clicked on no sounds and the section came up blank. I then clicked on several other ideas and they showed up blank. I'm assuming the sound trouble shooter isn't working. I've tried help in Windows Media player and wasn't able to find any suggestions. I'm pretty sure something is unclicked in the computer somewhere but I'm not sure where to go. Suggestions?
