    Heya,

    I got hands on 2 (working) laptops made in 1996.

    Toshiba Satellite 110CS
    -Pentium 100 MHz
    -800x600 (C&T65548 Graphics)
    -Running DOS 6.22

    Toshioba Satellite 220CS
    -Pentium 133 MHz
    -800x600 (uo tp 1024x768@65k colors) (C&T 65554)
    -SoundBlaster Pro 16-bit (Clone)
    -infrared port
    -Running DOS 6.22 (in combination with Win 3.1)


    The 220CS even has USB support already and I was glad someone made DOS drivers for USB Sticks! :)

    Now I wonder if these BIOS files offer any opportunity for modding. Even if its beyond minimal. ;)
    (as BIOS doesnt really offfer anything els then time, date, win95 support, HDD detection and set SoundBlaster Variables)

    Both laptops use some kind of Toshiba BIOS and the tool chgbios.exe (CHanGe Bios) by Toshiba 1994,1997.


    I attached both (official, untouched) BIOS updates as 1 file here :
