I see the problem you have is that Intel no longer provide support for this motherboard & so they have no XP drivers for it.
The link below is for the Yamaha generic driver (XP) which may just work :
Scroll to the bottom of the page & select the OPL3-SAx (YMF715) driver for XP. Let me know if it works.
One more thing.....the system in question is a very old Pentium 2 motherboard. Be warned that XP will probably reduce it to the equivalent of a 486!

Run the programme, click + next to computer then summary
Look on right for multimedia / audio adapter
Look at the manufacturer’s site for the suitable drivers for your Operating System
If you are unable to find them, please post the make and model here before you download anything
Please set a system restore point before you install anything

Thanks for your email. In response to that query, members normally reply back inside the topic rather than email. If you wish to get in touch with someone personally you can PM them (send a private message).
Anyway, back to the topic in hand....
It's just occured to me that XP 'should' already have the Yamaha OPL3-SA (YMF715) driver in its database. I can't check this for sure because my XP installation has just fallen over but I can confirm that Windows 2000 has it so I expect XP will too.
I've also realised (according to Intels website) that you need the OPL4 (YMF704) driver as well to make this work, so I've attached the OPL4 driver below.
Can you go int device manager for me (Start->Run->devmgmt.msc) & tell me :
1) Exactly what is listed under the Sound Video & Games controllers section
2) Exactly what is listed in the 'Unknown' or 'Other Devices' section (if there is one)
3) Whether any device anywhere is device manager has a red cross or a yellow exclaimation mark against it.
