Got the 2nd hand Dell charger from the U.K. through ebay for the docking station. Same store I ordered the other Dell charger from for the laptop itself. I am not using the docking station yet though. First fixing DOS sound then the mouse.
I am enjoying it a bit but not as much as I want to because I am still fixing problems with DOS sound or well trying to. Setblast.exe did not fix my problem, though windows 98se sound is working fine. I tried every combination, took awhile but nothing only error when I pressed test. I also tried blast.exe and setsound.bat while I was at it, nothing either. Is there anything I should pre-prep in windows 98se before using setblast.exe????
I don't know if I was clear but I'm trying to get sound working after exiting windows 98se and reboot in DOS. I managed to get sound working with the file you sent me in Windows 98se commandprompt (while still in win 98se) and it saved it to autoexec.wos instead of bat, wondering if I should edit the .bat file myself but I guess that does not fix anything. I also tried using dossound program for ac97 but did not work in DOS itself (well the program did but still no sound).
Still need to take a look at the mouse though. I have no space left in my hobbyroom 🤣, trying to sell this Commodore C64C casemod and then I can put my docking station there for awhile. Maybe I'll just put it in a box next week. Anyway still need some space for a new computer housing from Aopen as well, have this old intel computer that I bought cheap (so it looks REALLY REALLY bad on the outside and sounds like it is running on diesel) and need to unscrew everything and built up a new computer for old games as well. Still might need some parts though, we'll see. The Aopen will be my next project I guess, but not for awhile first I'll just enjoy the laptop 😀 and finish installing everything so I can use some of the stuff I learned for other projects.
I will look into Revelations and task manager programs/packs, thanks for the tip.
