For my DOS programs I often use CONTROL-BREAK (on another computer) but can't seem to get this function on the Compaq Armada E500. Any ideas? Thanks

Control + Z really should help you in this case, I would not understand why control break would not work, Maybe its the way the keyboard is layed out or some other small issue try control Z and let us know if that works.


Thanks

    Control Z did not work - it just puts an arrow on the screen. However after more tries I found that Fn Break did work ! I thought I had tried all the combinations.
    Thanks anyway.

I've found it is highly unlikely to run an old DOS program in Win2000 so I have decided to setup an old computer with Win 3.1 and use it for my DOS software.

Armada m3000 screen


you can mess around and try to fix it but on those old machines its really not worth it(I own 5 of these).Might I suggest the Armada M700 or the E500--e500 is what im on now and it runs better than a brand new dell or compaq)you might get a new screen on ebay for about 40 bucks. It might be a better idea to buy a new one and save the parts from your old one. You can get a new one for 70 bucks on ebay.
