OPTi MPU-401

On startup I get an error message 'OPTi MPU-401' It tells me to go to control panel and reconfigure the driver. I have removed the game card in device manager and tried to get Win95 to detect new hardware but it doesn't. I can't find the MPU-401 driver anywhere on my system and I don't have a driver disk for the card. I have been all over OPTi's web site but there is nowhere to download any drivers, no tech support and no email address! I suspect this driver is something to do with my logitec wingman joystick as this has stopped working also.
If anyone has a solution, please keep it simple thanks.

Hi,
you could try to reinstall your wingman. I think you have drivers for this.

Your wingman is probably connected to the soundcard.

I believe you can get a copy of the driver if you point your browser to:
==> ftp://ftp.opti.com/pub/chipsets/sound/index.htm

If you don't find it let me know, I just e-mailed a copy to someone else and got his up & running.

Forgot to say that this is part of your OPTI sound card
Check in your Device Manager under Sound, video and game controller.  You should have 3 entries:
1) OPTi Plug-N-Play Joystick Controller
2) OPTi Plug-N-Play MPU-401
3) OPTi Plug-N-Play Sound System
