Omnibook 800ct Sound Problem

I recently reinstalled Windows 95 on my Omnibook 800ct and when I installed all the drivers the sound drivers won't work. When I check Device Manager it has the little yellow exclamation point. What is most likely the cause of this and how can I fix this

Re: Omnibook 800ct Sound Problem

The little yellow mark means that you have a problem with that device. there are 3 different drivers listed on here. another item to try is to delete/uninstall the driver and shut down toatally and let windows reinstall the driver.

Re: Omnibook 800ct Sound Problem

I have a similar problem with the 800CT MMX.

I have WIN98SE installed, but the sound card does not work.
Same installation ( copy of disk ) works on
800 133Mhz without issues.

Does anyone have the original or a working
image for the 800CT MMX ?

Re: Omnibook 800ct Sound Problem

The 166MMX model has different sound and video chips on the motherboard from the 133 non-MMX. Download the appropriate driver package for your laptop model by following "Support & Drivers" at the top of the page.
