Adax ML 100MHz
Adax was a brand of PCs made by JTT company from
Wroclaw, Poland using western and Taiwanese components. These PCs were
quite good and build quality was much better than in many smaller PC
workshops. Additionally they offered upgrades and software.
This thing has been upgraded and I'm not even sure the mainboard is original - it was 100MHz, but it could be 486DX4, as it was popular around 1990s to obtain 100MHz. The non-standard thing in this computer is the front panel with very soft buttons, LEDs and display. Turbo switch works on the edge, not state so it's a momentary button.

The ES1373 sound card has a few drivers available in the net and I haven't found everything, especially for Win95. There is a small driver, a few kB, and it does not work well. Another one has about 1MB, and this won't install MIDI so the driver complains about it. Probably a 16MB package is the way to go.
The 3Com modem works as generic and jumper settings are written on board.
