This information applies to both Microsoft DoubleSpace and Microsoft DriveSpace. For MS-DOS 6.22, use DRVSPACE in place of DBLSPACE for commands and filenames.
When you run MS-DOS-based applications on a Compaq Prolinea 4/33 with a VGA monitor, the screen may flash.
Compaq has confirmed that a defective system board may not allow MS-DOS-based applications to access some VGA-specific functions, which can result in flashing and other unpredictable behavior.
To correct this problem, contact Compaq for a replacement motherboard.
Applications that may be affected include MS-DOS Shell, Microsoft Diagnostics (color), DoubleSpace maintenance program, Microsoft Backup, Lotus 1-2-3, WordPerfect, Norton Utilities, and QEMM Manifest.
The products included here are manufactured by vendors independent of Microsoft; we make no warranty, implied or otherwise, regarding these products' performance or reliability.
