Word: “Cannot Switch Display Modes” Message with IBM 8514/A

PSS ID Number: Q42868 Article last modified on 11-02-1994




For Microsoft Word version 5.0 to run in graphics mode with an IBM 8514/A graphics adapter, the IBM program HDILOAD.EXE must be run before starting Word. The HDILOAD.EXE file can be found on the IBM 8514/A Adapter Interface Card diskette.

If HDILOAD.EXE is not run before loading Word, the following error message appears when you attempt to switch to graphics mode:

Cannot switch display modes.
