Hi all !
I'm a good user of Vogons so i did some research, but didn't find answers for my problem.
I own a Toshiba Satellite Pro SP4270 wich has a Yamaha YMF744 and everything is perfect with drivers found here or at PhilsComputer Lab :
- Sounds with soundblaster pro settings in DOS
- OPL3 in DOS
- XG wavetable under W98SE and still OPL and SB Pro sounds
So its a nealry perfect labptop for MS-DOS gaming !
But i just got a Toshiba Tecra 8200 with a Yamaha YMF754, a bit more sexier machine. So, i tried at once the drivers i used on the 4270, but they don't work. No sound at all. When launching setupds /s , it tells me everything is using IRQ 5, but nothing works.
I went on trying to understand what are the 'big' differences between the SP4270 and the Tecra 8200 , I discovered they useda different chipset. The Tecra 8200 is based upon an Intel ICH2-M 81815 it seems, so i used the modified setupds.exe for Intel ICH2 and it does produce a slightly different result, i got music working under DOS (OPL) but still no SB sound at all. Setupds now tells me that it is IRQ11 which is used, and it seems i cannot change that (?).
If anyone can help me to understand, it would be great, thanks !
