They're usually on a driver CD that came with the system - Utilities or Drivers are the key things to look for on the CDs.

OR - look on this page for drivers to download click here

It sounds (excuse the pun) as though you have not installed the drivers for your sound card or modem.

When you originally got your computer you will have been given a load of CDs and possibly floppies.

Have a look for one that looks as though it has drivers for your sound card, and also one for your modem.

If you know the make of your sound card and modem possibly be able to give more advice.

To find them look at the PCI slots inside your computer. The one with the telephone cable socket is the modem have a look and see if there is any info, also same for sound card.

I have looked at the modem card and there is very little info on the actual card but i did find the original system configuration sheet and on that it states that a V.90 data fax modem(56kbps) is installed,I have installed a v.90 standard driver from windows but to no avail.when i go into the systm setting ,device drivers it sees my modem but itstill does not see the modem. I also have cleared all the old dial up networking connections and reinstalled to no avail

regards

When you reinstalled 98 over itself did you redownload all M$ updates? Force device manager to reinstall drivers (even if it says it's ok) by navigating via M$ (if no-go use this pci finder tool to identify modem click here or may have to use aida32 for sound card)

You mean it wasn't any of the drivers from the P-B web site??
