you wont be able to play pacific assault unless you get a new graffics/video card that supports a higher direct X

as for your sound Make sure you have drivers installed for your sound card.

try doing this ..


start/settings/control panel/sounds and multimedia/ then select the audio or hardware tab and make sure the rite soundcard is selected.

drop me a email if you completely lost i might be able to help.

There is no sound card
You either do not have a sound card installed on your computer or it is not functioning properly. If you do not have a sound card installed, you must install one before you can listen to audio in a digital media file. If you do have a sound card installed, refer to its documentation to troubleshoot the problem.

OK, right click on the MY Computer desktop icon.
Click on Properties.
Click on Hardware.
Click on Device Manager.
When the window opens do you see Sound,Video and Game Controllers? If so click on it to see a list of hardware.
Is your sound card listed there? Does it have a little yellow ! mark?

If it is there and is marked ! then there is probably somthing wrong with the drivers.

If you dont see any sound related hardware then either the sound card has gone pop or Windows simply cannot see it.

You could try going to Control Panal and Adding New Hardware.

You could try opening up the machine and re-seating the card or putting it into a different slot.
