Panorama VESA troubleshooting
Q: I installed Panorama VESA. Traps in display, etc.
A: Disable ACPI.PSD or update to ACPI 2.20,
reset to IBM GENGRAD, install Panorama VESA again.
Q: Trap on boot, hang
A: Disable ACPI.PSD or upgrade to ACPI 2.20 or higher
Q: gradd.log contains errors, GENGRAD is loaded, not VBE2GRAD
A: Read installation instructions again, check CONFIG.SYS again
Q: Trap in PMI1002.DLL during boot to desktop
A: Remove old dlls:
* Remove PMI1002.DLL (copy it to backup directory)
(pmixxxx.dll files are extenders for VBE. 1002 - for ATI)
* If this doesn't help then try remove genpmi.dll,
* then ibmgpmi.dll, svgadata.pmi
Q: Shadow buffer is enabled but it doesn't work (drawing is slow)
A: * Try upgrade/downgrade motherboard BIOS of the computer.
* Check x:\vbe2grad.log, It should contain: Write Combine caching enabled
Q: Video players hang on mouse move
A: Disable comet cursor
Q: DOS, MsgBox: "The system doesn't support the video mode in a window"
A: Try boot VSVGA.SYS with parameters:
/PCITRAP=08-0F /PCITRAP=10-2F /PCITRAP=E0-F3 /PCITRAP-F8-FB /PCITRAP=100-113
Try them individually and/or all together, and hopefully you'll find
something that works.
