Testing the Program on the 95LX

Testing the Program on the 95LX

Now we can transfer the files to the 95LX and prepare for a trial run. At this point, make sure that there is nothing on the 95LX that you can not afford to lose. If you have created the CONFIG.SYS file described on the previous page, press <CTRL> <ALT> <DEL> to reboot and bring up the DOS prompt.

 Start the program the same way that you would on your PC and observe closely its behavior. Also start the program on your PC. This will give you a full screen for reference.

If the screen stays blank or is frozen it is likely that the 95LX has locked up. Please follow the following steps if that occurs:

  1. 1. Press <ALT>-ArrowKeys to try to move the 95LX's window. It is possible you are seeing a blank portion of the screen.
  2. 2. If 1 fails, press <CTRL> <ALT> <DEL> to reboot the 95LX.
  3. 3. If 2 fails, press <Shift> <CTRL> to reboot the 95LX and answer NO to the "reinitialize" prompt.
  4. 4. If 3 fails, remove and reinsert the main batteries without the AC adaptor being plugged in.



If you get the above results, carefully study the program's documentation with regards to memory requirements, display modes, and serial port usage. Remember, you can enter SET UP and press System Memory to increase the system memory. NOTE: COM2 must never be checked by the program or the result will be a lockup.

 Once you get the program running, give it a quick run through noticing how the screen is behaving. If your display is jumping around to areas that are not desired, exit the program and type dispctl -c at the DOS prompt. Launch the program again and observe whether the screen action is more useful. The DISPCTL -C command disables Cursor Tracking, so you must manually press <ALT>-ArrowKey or <Shift> <ALT>-ArrowKey to view the rest of the display.

 As you run through the program, perform the same keystrokes on your PC. This will allow you to gauge the effectiveness of your setup. Additionally, problem areas can be quickly spotted.
