After reinstalling Win 95, I received an error message.  I was instructed to install load the driver OPL3-SAx.  i do not have any driver like that.  None of the games that were used before can be used now - like Madden 99, FIFA World Cupm, Nascar Racing - my kids and my wife are driving me crazy.  What can I do to solve the problem?

I think it is a sound card driver. Look for it and install.

What kind of computer do you have? OPL3-SAx is a sound card driver.  The installer usually comes with the computer when bought.  Or maybe you can try installing one of the games you said. It may have the necessary sound driver.

Is there any listing in Device Manager for a sound device?
If so, please describe what you see there.

You should have the Driver on the Intel's CD which you should get with the MotherBoard

Or You can Download the Drivers from Intel's Sight or at the following Adress:
