Works 2.00: Compaq Gas Plasma Display Is Blank

PSS ID Number: Q50566 Article last modified on 06-12-1996




The Compaq gas plasma screen must be set to CGA mode for Works version 2.00 to display properly. If this setting is not correct, Works will come up with a blank screen and hang the system.

The following are two ways to place the gas plasma display into a CGA mode:

  1. At the DOS prompt, type MODE SEL CGA.
  2. You can physically change the mode to CGA by setting the jumper on the Compaq video card to bridge pins 1 and 2 of jumper block E23.
