Driver version tested: 4.10

For information about how to configure your TeleVideo TeleWave Q32/SRS sound card for use with ActiMates products or the SideWinder Force Feedback Pro joystick, please see the "930 Chipset" section of the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

172697 ActiMates/SideWinder: Configuring Opti Sound Cards

The TeleVideo TeleWave Q32/SRS sound card uses the Opti 930 audio chipset.

To add or update the Televideo TeleWave drivers, use the following steps:

  1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
  2. Double-click Add New Hardware.
  3. Click Next.
  4. Click No, and then click Next.
  5. Click Sound, Video And Game Controllers, click Next, and then click Have Disk.
  6. Type the path to where the updated driver files are located, and then click OK.
  7. Click the TeleVideo TeleWave Q32/SRS sound card, and then click OK.
  8. Click Next.
  9. Click Finish. If you are prompted to restart your computer, click Yes.

While the computer is restarting, you are asked if you want to load the real mode drivers for MS-DOS. You do not need to install MS-DOS drivers unless you boot to a command prompt to use applications that require sound, or you use MS-DOS based games that don't operate properly in an MS-DOS window. You can load the real mode drivers later if you are not sure if you need them now.

After Windows has restarted, audio and game port drivers should be listed under Sound, Video And Game Controllers in Device Manager.
