OK... I did something to the audio on my beige G3 and now I have no audio. I think I have the cause narrowed to one of two events, but that hasn't helped.
I've attempted adjusting the main audio settings, but when I do, it goes back to the zero point; I have reinstalled the OS 9.1 thinking the issue was software related; now I'm wondering if perhaps the sound card should be replaced.
I've worked around it for months, but I've decided it's time to knuckle down and fix the darn thing (I like playing my music when online).
Any suggestions on other things to try and/or places to purchase an affordable (and reliable) replacement card?
Make sure your "personality card" is seated correctly. Open up the computer, take out the card, and put it back in firmly making sure it's in all the way. The personality card is the one with the sound out/microphone in (and AV connections if you're lucky).
Here's an example of a personality card: Spymac auction [spymac.com] (it may be gone by the time you read this though).
