Also the speaker jacks on the keyboard PCB cracks off easily, thus do not bend it when you pull out the speaker cable. When intact, both sorts sound astonishingly good regarding how tiny these yellcoins are. I also had to install the harddisk from my EL since my XD specimen lacked it. I also had to disconnect its keyboard battery to reset the BIOS password, thus I unscrewed the palm rest to reach the components inside. Thus my only conclusion is that the cooler ESS soundcard, heat paste on the MPEG chip and the open modem jack hole has become sufficient now to keep the thing cool enough to prevent the fan from starting. I think they assume that you’ll have the disc from IBM. Have you actually tried pointing Windows to the directory where you extracted the mwave files to see if there are any drivers as part of the package?

Then carefully push the propeller a few times in propeller facing down to make the oil flow into the bearing. I start to hate Mwave the more I work with it.

Also the relatively thick felt on the rear chassis holes likely works similar like a Variovent a Dynaudio patented, non-linear air duct for speaker cabinets that damps large amplitudes strongerand also the different hole sizes in the aluminium front cover certainly do something important like a sonic lense to spread the sound wave or even partly reflect it back to the diaphragm to interact with partial vibrations.
Send the nasty Mwave card back to the space aliens to phone home with.
