Try installing a SBPro in Windows 95.
(Install New Hardware|NO, Dont detect new harware)
I had an OPTi 929 and this worked for me.
BTW: TOTALLY UNINSTALL THE OPTi SOFTWARE!
     The OPTi chip will not work in SBPro
     mode if you initialize it as an OPTi
     device.

1)  Built into what board?

2)  Does it show up in the device manager tree?  And if so, what kind of info do you find when you double click on it from the device manager?

use the drivers for soundblaster  16 that are supplied with 95 and see if they work.
I was working on a friends system and couldnt get any opti drivers to work correctly. Ended up setting it as sb16 and it now works fine.

OPTi has released an updated set of drivers for the 924 chipset.  The new drivers work great for me.  Simply uninstall all your old drivers (completely) and follow the instructions to install the new drivers from OPTi's FTP site.  The file you want to get is either ftp://ftp.opti.com/pub/multimed/82c924/924w95.exe or ftp://ftp.opti.com/pub/multimed/82c924/924w95c.exe   They are self-extracting archives.  Try that and see what happens!
