Was wondering if anyone has done any research into the
Vtech Platinum machines with an Award BIOS v4.50 and
702704D motherboards. Is there anyway to update these
machines to get them to rool over to 2000.
Have tried a few tests, and the date went to 2094.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.

My information says that VTech stuff is/was made
(or the company was bought) by PCPartner. Their website
doesn't list your board in the bios upgrade area,
but they do have a Y2K compliance page at:
If all else fails, Norton 2000 might work, but it's
bios fix sits resident in conventional memory, and
I'm not sure that these fixes will work on every
machine and with every piece of software out there.
The general rule of thumb seems to be that bioses
manufactured after November 1996 are, or are upgradeable
to be, Y2K ready.
