Does anyone know where I can get hold of a driver for my sound card so I can hear some system sounds instead of that annoying *beep* all the time. I don't have a sound card.

Try this arj-file:

for Windows 3.x. Easy to add with installation instructions.

..just so you know: when you use this program the pc will "freeze" when playing the sound.. and resume normal operaiton when the sound has finished.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

There IS a "speaker.drv" for win 3.x, but since it suffers from the
problem mentioned in my above post, it isnt much use really.
