Jenny 100, Thank you, I read these articles and being computer dumb, I am afraid to make changes, I am a coward. I have OpenAL on my computer. While I was fussing at myself, I went into the game file and found Launch Quake IV icon. I used this icon instead of the icon GOG put on desktop and the game has sound and plays perfectly. I got lucky.
