Default drivers

Hey all,
I recently formatted an old computer of mine and reinstalled win98. (I know get with the times - lol) but anyway I can't get the sound to work. The sound is built onto the mobo and win98 can't install a driver for it. Do I just need download a sound driver or do I need a chipset driver? I have downloaded plenty of audio drivers with no luck. Any suggestion to help me out?

Thanks
Tilly

Go to the website of your motherboard manufacturer and download the sound drivers there. It should work.
