Accident on the keyboard

Recommended Posts

Well, I don't know what happened, but I know how it happened.
I dropped a small note pad with a pen on one end on the keyboard and when I looked up, it said : "Video will change on next restart" in a light bluish color...and when I signed off I re-started it, and I got a Black Screen with a white rectangular box floating around with some gibberish about being out of range or something stupid...
Does anyone know what the Hell happened ?
Respectfully,
Tokie

Try this.

Start EL Client

Do not log in

Select 'Settings' button

Select 'Video' tab

Make sure 'Full Screen' is not selected

In Video Mode, highlight 640x480x16

Close the Options Window by hitting the X in upper right corner

Press Alt-x to exit client

Start EL Client normally and log in.

Your screen will probably be a different size than it was, so you can go into Options again and try to find a resolution that works for you.

If the screen size has not changed, do the same before logging in, you might also want to select "poor man" in the options in the last tab, just to be safe.

 

Then log in and type (blindly probably)

#save

#exit

and then log in again.

The first line should save your changes settings, the second logs you off :)

I would like to add my experience; on EL.INI videomodes there is not all screen/monitor sizes, there is only 10 options, i had years wrong screen size, and characters shown slightly bold. then one day i made some tests, and add my own row; 11 = 1440x900 32bpp -and finally see real view, circular objects are circular, not oval :)

EXCELLENT responses and replies, ALL had something to offer...and it worked.
Don't ask me how, but you did it, I thank you *tokie bows in respect to all three of you* and I want to thank you again and again for the help.
Time for me to repay in kind, so, should you all need me to dig stuff for you or....with you....for any event, just send me a message.
Respectfully,
Mr. T.C. Cross / Tokie
