Mkemp1,
Hope this helps.

I received the error message “Virtual Audio Driver Initialization Error! Virtual Audio Driver was unable to locate the Sound System Hardware. Please check your Software/Hardware configuration and restart your computer. Press any key to continue entering Windows 95.
You have the Windows 3.1 drivers installed in your system.ini under Windows 95.
Note: The statement causing the problem is in the system.ini, [386Enh] section.

Remove the below statements in the system.ini.

For the OPTI 929 Sound card, remove "device=VSND16D.386" from the [386Enh] section.
For the OPTI 930 Sound card, remove "device=V930D.386" from the [386Enh] section.
For the OPTI 924 Sound card, remove "device=VSND924D.386" from the [386Enh] section
