Hi I've been here before and everyone has always been very helpful. Here is my latest problem. My kids have their own computer which is a IBM Aptiva 2194 36U very out of date and very low powered but suits them just fine for the purpose of chatting and misic downloads. They somehow messed up the Win 98SE OS and I had to do a Format reinstall and I did not back up any of the drivers for anything because I couldn't get the OS to do anything I wanted it to. I reinstalled from the Win 98SE disk and then updated video and audio drivers from the IBM site. Video installed well and everything works fine. Audio was installing and prompted "cannot find smx.cat file on disk or on C: drive I have done numerous serches and cannot find anything about how to get this file.When I check the device manager and click properties it says this device is working properly but still we have no sound. The main issue is the driver for the ethernet card does the same thing when I check device manager it says "SMACK 1244TX V2" this device is working properly but when we try to hook up to the internet we receive a "DNS ERROR" saying to check the internet settings. All settings are as they were before the reinstall. Holy moly I have spent the whole day searching driver pages and forums, but to no avail. I am wondering if it is my Win 98SE installation disk or am I just not going through the right steps. It's a good thing I have this machine to communicate with or I would really feel lost. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
