thats strange, Im sure I have a sound card. No, this computer I got for christmas and I have been upgrading it. I'll open up the case and check back with you later, but I believe I have sound blaster installed. Also, I have an audio out on my dvd drive, is it possible to connect my sub to it for the time being, or wouldnt it work.
Here is a wild shot in the dark, but it helped me. I couldn't get any sound out of my computer either.
Try going to start, settings, control panel, double left click sounds & multimedia, or multimedia, depending on if you have ME or 98,
select a different midi device.
I had the wrong one selected, and never got any sound out of it.
After changing the midi device, I started getting sound through the speakers.
Let me know what happens.
