Question about Toshiba Satellite 2805-S202 Notebook
Yes, I did say DOS :) Specifically, MS-DOS 6.2 and Windows 3.1. As this is an old laptop, I just reformatted it and installed DOS and Windows 3.1 to be able to run some old programs.
Everything works great, except that I do not have any DOS drivers for the sound card in the laptop. I don't know what kind of sound card it is, but I know it was Sound Blaster 16 compatible. I tried the Sound Blaster 16 drivers on Creative Labs' Sound Blaster website, but they didn't work. I tried the PnP, PCI and ISA versions of the drivers (one at a time, of course). The PnP drivers ("CTCU") crash with a run time error. And both the ISA and PCI drivers said it couldn't find the hardware at any of the port settings (e.g. 220, 240, etc.).
Can anyone point me to the drivers I need to get the sound card working in MS-DOS?
You pretty much need to know the name of the card to find the right drivers.
I'm trying to harken back to the days of yore, to remember if my 3.1 system even had a device manager in the control panel, but maybe I'd have to be sitting in front of it again. That old 386...
Try running DEVMGMT.MSC: (opens Device Manager ) at a command prompt and see if you can't find a listing for the sound card installed on your system, but I think this didn't work back then.
I've had good luck finding a variety of drivers here, for what it's worth. You might also try the small list of archive file available here
