Works 2.00 Hangs on Tandy 1000 TL and TL/2

PSS ID Number: Q50551 Article last modified on 06-12-1996




The CGA screen driver, CGA.VID, should be used on the Tandy 1000 TL and TL/2 for Works version 2.00 to operate properly. If the TANDY.VID screen driver is used with this computer, the computer hangs when Works is started.

To select CGA.VID, run the Setup program again and select the CGA, IBM, or Compatible option when prompted to choose the type of computer and graphics card being used.


Works 2.00 places keyboard drivers into the screen drivers. TANDY.VID contains a keyboard driver specifically for the older Tandy 1000 keyboards. The Tandy 1000 TL and TL/2 use a standard 101-key keyboard that does not work properly with the Tandy 1000 keyboard driver.
