You guys were great with my video problems,I have true color and love it..Now maybe you could help with my sound problems (should never have upgraded to W98) DirectX says I have an error 0.x887000a priority level in use by another caller. when I test, also I get nothing but a static like ping sound and the system freezes solid. If I happen to go to a web page that has sound playing, I freeze up solid.I downloade drivers from the internet but I don't know how to install them, my puter has an onboard soundpro ht 1869. also one other question? Why is it that everytime a pop up window (I hate them) come up from I get a script error? What are script errors anyway? thanks so much for all your help. Claudia Potter

Often drivers come in the form of a zipped file that need unpacking.If that's the case, create a folder to unzip them to.
Go into safemode>device manager and remove all references to your sound card.Check in add/remove programs to remove any software asocciated with sound if there happens to be any.
Reboot. When windows asks for the drivers, point it to the folder where you unzipped them to.
Hopefully that will do it.

What causes an Internet Explorer script error?
Starting with Internet Explorer 4.0, a programmer can use Internet Explorer's scripting capabilities to add functionality to Web pages. When Internet Explorer is running a script, if there are parts of the script that cannot be run, then they will cause script errors. The specific script error usually contains information about why the error occurred.

1. Try to exchange IRQ sound from control panel->System->DeviceManager->Sound,Video-> & some settings ... see you...
2. GoTo Pc Service :)
3. See V (Vera) but delete all *.inf files for Sound card from /Windows/inf/.

if you want 98, the best way is to save all data and wipe the drive. install it fresh. i had major problems until i did a clean install of 98 when i tried to upgrade.
