The PC Speaker driver may not produce high quality
sound on all computer systems.  The performance
of the PC Speaker driver is largely dependent upon
the hardware itself.  Microsoft does not guarantee
that the speaker driver will work with all
computer systems.

"Enable interrupts during playback" Setup Option
By default, the PC Speaker driver disables all 
interrupts while playing sounds for optimal sound 
quality.  As a result, you will noticed that the 
mouse cursor, keyboard or other processes will not 
respond while sounds are being played through the 
PC Speaker.  You can set PC Speaker to enable 
interrupts for serial port activity and mouse 
movements in the PC Speaker setup dialog, at the 
expense of sound quality.  

To set this option:
    - Run Control Panel
    - Open the Drivers icon
    - Select the Sound Driver for PC Speaker from
      the list of Installed Drivers
    - Choose Setup
    - Select or clear the Enable interrupts during
      playback check box.

Note: It may be necessary to select option when 
running some communication applications.

If you experience problems using the PC Speaker 
driver on an AST system, you should contact AST

Using Media Player with the PC Speaker driver
The version of Media Player provided with Windows
3.1 does not play *.WAV files with the PC Speaker
driver.  To play *.WAV files, you should use Sound
Recorder.  Windows 3.1 will install the Sound
Recorder icon in your Accessories Program Manager
