Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hi guys, I have a 21'' monitor running on an XP machine that was from a DOS machine. It was used on the DOS machine to run a specific program in a resolution using a little program called tmode that only works with a Matrox MGA Millenium. So I ran it on Windows 98 and it works. Although on Windows XP the monitor with the same grapics card it goes out of range. It comes up with the following; fH:21.9kHz (this is in red) fV:48.7Hz I've tried 43Hz through to 85Hz and no difference in the numbers so I gather the program sets the refresh rate. The command that runs is ''tmode -m41'' It works on windows 98 so this may be a NT vs DOS issue but any help would be appreciated. and I will rate your answers, Adam.

Far cry 2 keeps crashing to blackscreen


When does this crashing or black screen happen? During the boot up process or while you have windows booted all the way up?

If the computer is booting up all the way except the screen is black try the steps below.

Either your monitor or video card inside the computer is bad. Try connecting another monitor to the computer to isolate the problem. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays ok without any problems then your video card is good, but your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor does not display then the video card inside the computer is bad.

If the computer is not booting up all the way then try the steps below.

Try running the Check Disk Utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

Shaking screen blue screen


Is this the (BSOD) Blue Screen Of Death that gives you an error message and prevents you from booting up successfully? If so, run the check disk utility.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.
If you are talking about the color of your screen is blue then maybe your screen is going bad. Try an external monitor and see what it does. Borrow a monitor from a friend, relative, neighbor or co-worker and hook it up to the laptop. If the external monitor does the same thing then your Video Card is going bad. If the external monitor displays ok without any problems, then your original monitor is bad.

GX620 Dell, will not boot, 3 green steady lights and power lite, usb light....when i power on, it looks at the hard drive, then stops. monitor has blinking cursor...no bios comes up, and cannot access...


Does anything ever post to the lcd screen when you press the power button to boot it? Does it every show you things like which key to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup?

I think you have a corrupt or missing boot file or system file. The blinking cursor is indicative of that. Try running the Check Disk Utility from your XP CD.

Constructor does not want to run on my windows 7


It's a very old piece of software. If you have windows 7 professional or ultimate you can install virtual XP which will allow you to install older DOS programs.

If you have an extra copy of Windows XP or lower you can install that next to your copy of Windows 7.

Alternatively you can install Oracle Virtual Machine that lets you run a virtual machine inside of yours which could be Windows 98 which would be much better suited for installing that.

DEAR SIR I HAVE COMPAUTER HP COMAQ DC 7900 I WORK WITH SOME PROGRAM WORKING IN DOS .. THAN I NEED INSTALL DOS OPERATING SYSYTEM THE COMPUTER DON'T RESPON ... ALSO THE COMPUTER DON'T HAVE LPT I BRING CARD...


the best way to do this is probably use windows and run dosbox for windows. What it does is it emulates DOS and lets you run any program that requires dos. Because your computer doesnt have a LPT port. and nowadays only drivers for dos or newer operating systems come with the card. installing the driver in windows then running dosbox, it will see the LPT port.

you can get it here

How to write program for running the DOS,UNIX and LINUK command using C language


Dear Sagarshinde111,

Thank you for your excellent question on how to run all DOS and UNIX commands on a Frigidaire GLTF1670A Front Load Washer using the C programming language. I do not know specifically about washing machines, but there is a version of UNIX which has been ported to toasters that would be a good starting point. NetBSD is a full UNIX operating system written in C, and all the source code is freely available to use and change under the Berkeley License (which basically says, do what ever you like, but don't claim you wrote it). You can download it from netbsd.org. You will also find in NetBSD's excellent package source repositories (pkgsrc) the C source code for both DOS and Linux kernel emulation.

I am sorry that we were not able to help you in time for your class assignment (due the next day!), but perhaps this will help the next student who is given this rather challenging homework.

Running a dos batch file in background in windows


Batch file for what?

I once ran across a software called Dosbox that I used to run a customers dos based notes program in XP. It worked well, not sure about batch files, but worth a shot I suppose.

You can find info on it here - http://dosbox.sourceforge.net/
