  • Gateway MX-6214 laptop not permitting full DOS Screen

    Greetings ...

    A Gateway MX-6214 laptop is not permitting a full screen for DOS applications.

    I've adjusted all known settings, but it keeps reverting to a window, or auto-minimizes itself, rather than full screen.
    This is especially frustating because some PB-DOS apps use screen 12.

    Suggestions?

    Lots of non-CRT displays do that, laptop or not.

      Hmmm. My Regular PC is hooked to an HP vs-17 monitor, which accepts full-screen DOS just fine.

      Do not yet have Console Compiler - how are the latest monitors treating that in full-screen?

        Assuming your Gateway has an external monitor port, try hooking
        your HP monitor up and see what happens.

          Saw that in a PDS 7.1 program.
          It was solved by WIDTH 80,25

          How long is an idea? Write it down.

            Wasn't aware until I explored the GATEWAY's Start Menu that a COMMAND PROMPT Link existed.

            Everything works great under it - WHEW!
