                  Microsoft Windows NT 3.51
 Installing the Windows NT 3.51 Sound Driver on the OmniBook
                             800

System Installation Requirements:

       HP OmniBook 800 with Microsoft Windows NT 3.51
       Workstation installed.
       HP OmniBook 800 drivers for sound.  These drivers are
       located on the HP OmniBook 800 hard drive in the
       C:\OMNIBOOK\DRIVERS\WINNT\AUDIO directory.  The files can
       also be found on the HP OmniBook 800 recovery CD-ROM.

Procedure:

     The sound chip for the OmniBook 800 is integrated into
  the system board of the unit.  Enter the BIOS of the HP
  OmniBook 800 by pressing F2 upon booting the system.  Once
  in the BIOS, confirm that the audio is set to the following
  settings by choosing the Input/Output menu, Audio Ports,
  and then choose Advanced Audio.  The following settings
  should be confirmed (these are the default settings):

          Audio                         Wave 2 Audio

     IRQ       5                   IRQ       11
     DMA       1                   DMA       5
     Address   220

  If the settings do not match the above, change them to
  match by using the tab key.  Or if you wish to change the
  settings so that no conflicts occur in your environment,
  change the settings, although these default settings are
  highly recommended.  Once the settings are correct, save
  and exit the BIOS and load Microsoft Windows NT 3.51
  Workstation.

     From the Main Program Group, double click on the
  Control Panel icon.

     From within Control Panel, double click on the
  Drivers icon.

     Windows NT brings up a drivers windows.  Choose Add
  from this window.

     At the next window, choose OK.  This selects the
  default option (Unlisted or Updated Driver).

     Windows NT will now ask for the location of the driver.
  Enter the correct location of the driver files at the prompt
  then choose OK.

     The following driver will appear in the window:
  ES1888/ES1868/ES888 AudioDrive 2.00.04.  Choose OK to
  install this driver.

     The driver will need to know an appropriate I/O
  address.  These settings must match what the BIOS settings
  are for sound.  Choose the default 220 address by selecting
  Continue.   The driver will now need to know the
  appropriate resources to use.  In the Settings dialog box
  choose the following settings (these are the defaults, if
  you changed the settings in the BIOS for some reason, you
  will need to make the same changes here):

                    I/O Address:        220
                    IRQ:           5
                    Capture DMA:   1
                    MPU 401 Address:    330
                    Playback DMA:  5
                    Playback IRQ:       11

  Once the following has been entered choose OK.  Windows
  NT will load the driver then prompt you that you must
  reboot your computer for the changes to take effect.
  Choose to reboot the OmniBook 800 now.   After completion
  of the reboot, the audio capabilities should work under
  Windows NT 3.51 Workstation.
