I've removed XP because I cannot get ANY sound at all. And moved back to 98 where I cannot get sound but I can hear small buzzing, whine and crackling sounds, even though drivers DO work. I have both, National XpressAUDIO 16-bit and PCI-Bridge (version says unknown but dated 8-2-99) under Sound, game controllers on Device manager. I have BIOS set to defaults sound working AND I have heard it before, matter of fact, I tested it on DOC with Win98 Lite, It does produce fair sound.
Just not in full Windows 98. Can someone shed some light on this? thank you!
