The SmartVu display on Dell computers is bypassed if the virtual file allocation table (VFAT) is enabled using Windows for Workgroups 3.11.


This occurs because the system BIOS is bypassed when reading and writing to the hard disk drive if VFAT is enabled. The most recently accessed cylinder (prior to the loading of VFAT) on the hard disk drive is displayed in the viewing window.
