Although I don't know the specifics for the Thinkpads, with win95 the autoexec.bat is generally redundant, and should just have the basics, like settings the path.  Win95 takes care of the rest.

The autoexec shouldn't be effecting your soundcard, though try removing your set blaster line.

As for deleting of programs, I'm pickin' you've either not set up your floppy correctly in the bios, or you've got a virus on your system.  Try giving it a good check over with a decent virus scanner.

Are your corporate email signatures appalling?

Is it scary how unprofessional your email signatures look? Do users create their own terrible designs and give themselves stupid job titles? You can make this a lot easier for yourself by choosing an email signature management solution from Exclaimer today.

Well, this line isn't really required for win95 sound to work, but if you run the diagnose program (in the your sound cards installation directory) this will replace the line.

Is the sound card set up in win-95?  If not have you tried scanning for new hardware using the add-new-hardware section of the control panel.  

If it is set up, check it's properties by looking in the diagnostics section of the system properties (also in the control panel).  Make sure it has no hardware conflicts (which are highlighted by an esclamation mark).  If it does try changing the irq line of the sound card, or the device it is conflicting with (this is assuming that it is a pnp card).
