    Post No lcd output

    Hey peeps. Have a hardware problem is that I get no output on the LCD when I don't have a moniter hooked up to my video card. I get LCD output when I use MPXF but when it goes to MPXPlay, I don't get any output. Is there any way to trick the video card that there is a moniter hooked up to it or is it a bios setting?

    As long as the video card is present, I don't think it should matter. Are you running the mxpf TSR?

    rocket has the right idea...I'd check to make sure the MPXF TSR is running. I made a little batch file to run it. It looked something like this:

    filename: startmpfx.bat
    Code:
    mpxftsr
    sleep 1
    mpxf mpxf.cfg

    Yes MPXFTSR is running. So that is'nt the problem. The video card im using is a Cirrus Logic chip based and its a CL-GD5430 chip. It's a ALPIN: 32-BIT VGA GUI accelrator. BIOS version 1.20 and it has 1m byte of display memory. What happens is that when the moniter is not plugged into the Video card, it seems like MPXPLAY doesn't write anything into the video memory.
