I have been playing with CTDOS on my new Dell 600M in anticipation of using
it this fall for some Caribbean contesting. The computer uses Win XP and I
am running CT under the Command Prompt.
First of all, if I enter SOUND in the entry window so I can have a sidetone
during the play period, I find that the sound is garbled. I have noticed
exactly the same problem on my Dell desktop which also runs Win XP. I haven't
checked, but I think the actual keying is OK. While this is not an urgent
problem, I am curious if the garble can be eliminated. When I run CTWIN, the
sidetone sound is perfect on either computer.
When I run CTWIN on the desktop, the display (CRT) is OK but not full
screen. It is fully usable. But, on the laptop (LCD) display it is quite
and Alt-Enter does not improve it. Nor does -L, or -vga. Is everyone using
CTWIN on a laptop living with this or am I screwing up somewhere along the
line? I can live with it but I don't like it because I am old and my eyes are
I am still playing with CTDOS but not being able to completely shell out of
Win XP and run under pure DOS really sucks. Another MS "feature". I may
have to resort to partitioning the hard drive, but I am far from smart (no
wirehead here!) in that arena.
Your comments and suggestions are appreciated.
