The Roland LAPC-I is a sound card for IBM PC compatibles, first introduced in 1988 by Roland Corporation. It is basically the MT-32-compatible Roland CM-32L and the MPU-401 unit, integrated onto a single full-length 8-bit ISA card. In addition to normal Roland dealers aimed at musicians, it was distributed in the USA by Sierra On-Line for use with the company's games. The price of the card was around $500 (US).
Back in the mid 90’s sound card in 386/486 laptops were somewhat of a luxury. There was a little known fact that you could play .wav files through your PC Speaker (You know that thing that makes the beep just before your computer boots the OS or when you hit the wrong key. Below are the drivers that can be install for Windows 3.1/Windows 95 so you can play basic wav files and even play that jingle when Windows loads up.
This page contains a collection of USB drivers for Windows 3.1 USE with extreme caution as there is limited success getting drivers working in Windows 3.1 on DOS considering there was never official support for USB on this OS. Windows 95c was the first DOS based Windows OS to have official support for USB.

The HP LaserJet 4 (abbreviated sometimes to LJ4 or HP4) is a group of monochrome laser printers produced in the early to mid-1990s as part of the LaserJet series by Hewlett Packard (HP). The 4 series has various different models, including the standard LaserJet 4 for business use, the 4L for personal use and the 4P for small businesses. Additional models included the 4Si model, created as a heavy-duty business printer, and the 4V model, a B-size printer for desktop publishing and graphic artists.
The S3 Trio range were popular graphics chipsets for personal computers and were S3's first fully integrated graphics accelerators. As the name implies, three previously separate components were now included in the same ASIC: the graphics core, RAMDAC and clock generator. The increased integration allowed a graphics card to be simpler than before and thus cheaper to produce.
The AWE32's successor, the Sound Blaster AWE64 (November 1996), was significantly smaller, being a half-length ISA card (meaning it was only half the length of the AWE32). It offered similar features to the AWE32, but also has a few notable improvements, including support for greater polyphony. However, these additional voices were achieved via software emulation using host CPU resources, called WaveGuide, rather than being processed on the card, and were thus of questionable value in some situations.
Sound Blaster AWE32 is an ISA sound card from Creative Technology. It is an add-on board for PCs. The AWE32, introduced in March 1994, was a nearly full-length ISA card, measuring 14 inches (356 mm) in length. It needed to be this large because of the number of features included (the most available at the time). At the time, manufacturing technology was incapable of integrating all of the functions into a smaller number of chips.
Sound Blaster 16 (June 1992), the successor to Sound Blaster Pro, introduced 16-bit digital audio sampling to the Sound Blaster line. They also, like the older Sound Blasters, natively supported FM synthesis through a Yamaha OPL-3 chip. The cards also featured a connector for add-on daughterboards with wavetable synthesis (actually, sample-based synthesis) capabilities complying to the General MIDI standard. Creative offered such daughterboards in their Wave Blaster line.
