Does anybody have experience with this computer or similar Sony Vaio computers?
I'm trying to set up a basic little dos gaming rig for a buddy with this computer he had sitting in a closet. Dos and Win 98 seem to work fine for the most part so far, but I'm having trouble getting the audio drivers (sis730s) to work in dos, though they work in win98 well through realtek ac97, and I can't get win98 to acccept the video driver. It loads under the basic Microsoft display driver, but that limits me to 16 colors and 640x480. I've tried sis drivers I could find, and even one specific for sony (found here: http://www.driversguru.com/driverdetail/22002 … 30+Video+Driver), but so far no luck. The basic driver installs, but then it never loads. If I force it to load that driver speciifcally, it will do it, but it isn't loading correctly, so still 16 colors and 640x480. If I use the sony specific one, it says the driver isn't designed for this machine.
I'm feeling stuck. Anybody go through anything similar and figure it out? Thanks in advance.
