Sound driver problem playing

This game is run on DOS. Every time I try to play it I get "error, could'nt load the sound driver". When I installed it, it asked me to choose the driver, which wasn't on the "list" so I chose "microsoft windows sound system". My sound driver is Realtec AC97. HELP! I just bought this game, and can't use it.

What other soound card options are there? Maybe choose Creative Labs or go thru list. If that does not work then google the game for sound issues.

No sound when playing music files


Seems like your sound driver is not installed, right click on My Computer and click on Properties, go to Device Manager and see if you have any "Unknown devices" that needs to be installed

I have it almost installed but before i can play the game my screen changes resloution and magnifies my windows then i get an alert box telling me that the organ trail game cant be installed then it closes...


Ahh i see.... Starting with windows 2000/XP. Windows no longer supports DOS... Im kinda sad about that myself D= but it doesnt end there for you my friend. Organ trail is a great game.

My tip is for you to get a program called DOS box from source forge. Simple google DOS BOX. Install the program and run the program from within dosbox. If you dont know how to run dos box simply drag the EXE you are trying to run into the window. Give it a try and it will work trust me. GL in the game....

I recently had a HD crash and have replaced it with another HD using the same Windows XP OS. While trying to reload programs that were on the old HD to the replacement, some of the programs get this error...


I always receive a "C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC.NT" error message.

“C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC.NT. The system file is not suitable for running MS-
DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Choose ‘Close’ to terminate the application.”

This error message is not caused by the installation CD-ROM, but rather by the
“Autoexec.nt” system file. Windows is unable to find this file when launching the
installation CD-ROM, the file most likely having been deleted by another application.

To resolve this problem, proceed as follows:
1. Go to “C:\Windows\repair” and find the file “Autoexec.nt”.
2.Copy this file to “C:\Windows\system32”.
3.Right-click the file “Autoexec.nt” that you have just copied, and select
“Properties”.
4.Tick the “Read-only” box and then click “OK”.

Good luck!

I can not play audio files


In the windows media player go to > now playing - more options - devices - speakers then changed the audio device to use your soundcard.

Also, uninstall any other players, they usually interfere with each other.
