Yamaha sound card not working in DOS

Hello, all. Grim returns with sad news: my 486 has been slain by my brother's evil hand. This means I no longer can play the games I so love. Unless.....

...unless I can get them to work on my P3-450! Wooohooo! There is hope. However, I have attempted this before, to the sound of silence... as my Yamaha integrated sound card (owners of 1999 Dell Dimension PCs will know what I'm talking about...) does not like Dos. Here are my bats and cfgs:

Autoexec.bat:

@C:\PROGRA~1\NORTON~1\NAVDX.EXE /Startup
@echo off
REM [Header]
SET PATH=C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND;C:\Mouse;c:\
REM SET PATH=%PATH%;"C:\Program Files\Solid Edge SmartView\Program"
PROMPT $P$G

REM [CD-ROM Drive]
Loadhigh c:\cdrom\mscdex.exe /d:mscd001 /L:d

REM [Sound]
SET CTCM C:\
C:\CTCM.EXE /B
SET BLASTER=A220 I5 D1 T4
SET SOUND=C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\

REM LH C:\PROGRA~1\FOLDERS\MF.EXE

Loadhigh mouse.com
REM SET CLASSPATH=C:\Program Files\HEAT\navbar;%CLASSPATH%
LFNFOR=ON


Config.sys:

DOS=HIGH,UMB
DEVICE=C:\WINDOWS\HIMEM.SYS /T:OFF
DEVICEHIGH=C:\WINDOWS\EMM386.EXE RAM
FILES=50
REM [Header]

REM [CD-ROM Drive]
REM DEVICE=C:\CDROM\TAISATAP.SYS /D:MSCD001 /PIO L:d

REM [Miscellaneous]

REM [Display]

DEVICE=C:\WINDOWS\setver.exe
[COMMON]



Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks a bunch!

Grim out.

That doesn't look like Yamaha integrated sound to me; that's Creative's driver for the AWE line of cards.

Um...I have a Yamaha Sound Card. This is what I typed in the command prompt to make it work in DOS, I'm not sure if it will work with you.

C:\PROGRA~1\YAMAHA\YAMAHA~1\SETUPSA.EXE

Then you will come up with a menu and you just select the settings.

You can add this to your autoexec.bat and add the /S at the end of the command line. Even though this is a harmless command you should back up you autoexec.bat file just in case. Hope this helps.
