hi experts,

I'm running windows95 OSR2 version 4.00.1111, but when I try
to setup my 'no name' soundcard with yamaha OPL chips in windows95.....I counldn't get it to work (I have no soundcard driver for this).

Even, the add hardware wizard in windows95 couldn't detect the existence of my soundcard. Any idea on where to get the driver or the driver that is compatible with my soundcard ?

thanz in advace for any help, thank you

Are you comfortable going into your BIOS?  
If so, try disabling your onboard sound system (yamaha OPL).
Then have 95 detect new hardware

Is there a small speaker icon in the systray at bottom right corner of screen?
If so, double-click it to set playback volume louder.
If not, go to Control Panel> Multimedia> and select your device.  You can set volume there.
Let me know what you find.

hi rmorotta,

there is a small speaker in the systray, and in multimedia icon everything is perfectly set. Except there is no sound coming out from the speaker.

FYI, I have confirm my speaker is in working condition and the plug is in the correct point of the sound card and the sound card itself is in working condition before i format the hard disk.

is there a possiblity that the sound card driver from yamaha is not compattible, how do I solve the problem ??

thanz in advance for any solution.

cklim,
"....  the sound card itself is in working condition before i format the hard disk."

How did you determine this?

If the soundcard driver is incompatible, I think you will see a conflict listed in Device Manager.
Try this:
1) Start computer in safe mode.
 (For the startup menu, press F8 key when you see "Starting Windows95" message )
2) Go to Device Manager and remove any duplicated device listings that may be there.
 (Click on + signs and check all devices)
3) Shutdown and reboot.

Let me know how it goes.
