Default PCI Multimedia Audia Device - driver

I have a Emachine computer with on board sound. Windows 98 identifies the
Sound a 'PCI Multimedia Audio Device'. The computer originally came with
Mellinium, but I have an application that I need Windows 98. Everything
works with Windows 98, but I do not have the driver for the sound. Please
help

this is my first post to this newsgroup

Thanks for your advice

Default PCI Multimedia Audia Device - driver

Well, according to the specs for that machine, the audio device is an
"Intel® 82801 AC '97 PCI Audio". However, EMachines is so cheap that they
don't provide any drivers downloads at all, let alone for an OS other than
that with which the machine shipped.

It's *possible* that Win98 or 98SE might come with those drivers . I don't
have a 98 installation handy at the moment to check. For that same reason, I
also can't give you step-by-step instructions for seeing if they are already
available from the Windows installation files (which are on your machine, I
hope?) Something about letting you choose from a list of drivers, rather
than automatically locating them. Then again, if it can't locate them
automatically, they *probably* aren't there (I can think of a few reasons
why they might not be found even if they're there, but we won't go into that
now.)

Otherwise, you'll have to get it from Intel. Strangely enough (VERY
strangely!) Intel servers seem to be down at the moment. That or my ISP's
DNS server is messed up. In any case, I can't get there to locate the
drivers for you right now. I'll try again later. If you can get there and
you can locate the download, great. Let me know, OK? Otherwise I'll keep
trying.

Hmmmm... You might also want to use Everest to identify your hardware more
accurately, in order to see if more updated drivers are available. Even for
things so basic as the motherboard (which the EMachine specs *don't*
identify.) Get a free copy of Everest he

OK, I can finally get into Intel, but they don't have any drivers for just
the sound -- you have to get drivers for entire chipset (everything that's
on the mobo.) The procedure can be complicated, so it would be *very* wise
to use Everest, first, to make sure what we're dealing with. What I really
want to know is what the motherboard model is.

Default 98 emachine

Hello, Kim. I can't assist you at the moment, but I thought I'd clarify your
message and get rid of the old stuff. I am also going to share this post
with the Windows 98 General Discussion group, since this one gets little
traffic.

Default 98 emachine

http://support.microsoft.com/default...;EN-US;q143283
W98 Defaults to Safe Mode
It says, delete "Wnbootng.sts", if you have it...

(1) START button, Settings, Folder Options, View tab.
Bolt "Show all files" & UNcheck "Hide file extensions..."
(2) "START button, FIND, F/F, Wnbootng.sts". (Should be in C:\Windows.)
R-Clk it, & select "Delete"

http://support.microsoft.com/default...;EN-US;q306615
Always Starts in Safe Mode

Here is a way to edit MSDOS.sys. This is an important file.

(1) You won't even see it, unless "START, Settings, Folder Options, View
tab" is bolted "Show all files"; may as well uncheck "Hide file
extensions..." too.
(2) Find "C:\MSDOS.sys" and back it up. Call the backup MSDOS.bck, in
C:\.
(3) Then, R-Clk "C:\MSDOS.sys", Properties, and uncheck Read-Only.

(4) Open it in Notepad, delete the "BootSafe=1", or change it to "=0",
save it, & quit Notepad.

(5) Then, R-Clk MSDOS.sys again, and make it Read-Only. Reboot.
(6) Can't reboot? Then, in DOS, copy the backup over the one you've
mussed.
(a) ATTRIB -R -S -H C:\MSDOS.sys
(b) COPY C:\MSDOS.bck C:\MSDOS.sys
(c) ATTRIB +R +S +H C:\MSDOS.sys

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q118579/
Contents of the Windows Msdos.sys File

NOTE: If you have a "C:\Winboot.ini", it will override MSDOS.sys,
though. So, check for that too. It has the same format/instruction set
as the other.

Thanks or Good Luck,
There may be humor in this post, and,
Naturally, you will not sue,
