I am having problems getting the audio to work on my i-opener. I believe it is a version 1 (no bios flash needed). I installed Win98 SE on it and the volume control never shows up in the taskbar telling me that the audio isn't working. I guess it installed the drivers that were on the Win98 CD. I don't remember selecting any drivers, it probably did it automatically during the installations. Anyways, when I go into Control Panel> System, it has an error message for "Sound Blaster Pro or compatible" and "MS Windows Sound System or compatible". "MPU-401 Compatible" and "Gameport Joystick" work fine. Both had resource problems before and after resolving those problems it just says that the device is not present and I should try to update the drivers. What's the problem here?
Have You Removed All of your Sound Devices from Device Manager ?
Then the Refresh Button should be about as Good as Rebooting to see what Win98se finds.
You shouldn't have to give it any Drivers, Win98se has what it Needs.
To find other Ideas, You could try Search, But You shouldn't have had this Problem, so it is not well covered.
I have a two version ones, one of them is acting the same way yours is and the other is working perfectly. I know the one that is not working was a CompUSA display model. I just tried Windows ME, did not find it with the install, I went and manually tried installing the Yamaha driver and thought I heard the WinME startup tune. I then rebooted and it was lost. Maybe the YMF715E chip is going? I am going to try to debug this this weekend. If you or anyone has any ideas email me or post here please.
Found out what my weird audio problem was. It seems that the PLCC socket that holds the bios EEPROM was not making good contact. So when the OS went to load the audio driver it was getting flaky data from the EEPROM. I just bent out all the 32 socket contacts so that it would firmly make contact with the EEPROM.
