Victor,
Why do you think your MIDI problem is processor-related?

OK, here are some problems I have. SInce MediaGX motherboard has a processor with MX instructions, provided by Cyrix, the sound card is on chip. However, I cannot get my mike working. I checked all the possible of jacks and WIndows's volume options, however, there is no sound from mike. I checked mike on my friend's computer and it works fine. ALso, the MIDI files, distributed with WIndows95, I suppose they are of a general MIDI, don't play the way they should. Also I checked with my friend's computer. The drums and percussions sound awfull. What else do you think might cause the problems? Please note that there is no problems with playing Real Audio files and .wav files.
Best regards, VIctor

Victor, two problems here.
First, I would check settings for recording with the mic.
Double-click the speaker icon in systray to display mixer controls.  Then click options to be sure microphone is enabled for recording and clear the "mute" check-box.
Next, go to Control Panel/Multimedia and click the MIDI tab.
If there is more than one configuration listed, try another to see if MIDI sound is improved.
Let me know of your progress.
Regards,
Ralph

There are quite a few articles at MSKB on incompatabilities with Cyrix.

I post the URL's but MSKB seems to be down today.

Hi, I did previously checked what you have suggested and mike still doesn't seem to work. I am really confused as what else can be done. Techsupport, as you all know, is usually of no help anyway.
BEst regards,

Double-click speaker icon in systray, then "properties" from the options drop-down menu.  Select the "recording" radio button, be sure microphone is checked and then click OK.  You will now have the controls for recording devices displayed.  There is a check-box on the microphone slider.  Is it selected?

See: don't be fooled into thinking that because a certain program isn't listed that this is not the problem. MSKB is know for not being able to keep up on the bug list.
