Depends on what you define as graphics or sound.

For plain ordinary loudspeaker beeps the following should prove useful.

uses Crt;

Sound(Hz : word);   { Hz is the frequency   }
Delay(ms : word);   { Delays any next instruction for milliseconds }
NoSound;                 {Turns the noise off }

For graphics you have a demo program on your disk.  Look in the BGI folder at the file BGIDEMO.PAS.  Try compiling and running it.

This gives an example of what you do with the graphics ability and there's plenty of sample code there.

But you will really find that you need a Turbo manual to get the best out of it.

If you want better sound there's a variety of SB units out there you can use.

well, I always remind myself of the wonderful multi-voice music of the game "stardance" on Apple ][, which is equipped only with a buzzer 8-)))
