Problem solved by doing a DEFINEKEY with the internal keyboard
-VGA and -RESET did not fix
Thanks to all for other suggestions
Now can anyone tell me why after I change the MSDOS.SYS file
from GUI=1 to GUI=0 ( Yes I did change it from a Read only file to read file
the computer refuses to boot sgtraight into DOS when I cold boot ???
This has happened in the past on some other computers I tried it on, all
WIN 95 or 98
