1024*768 will not work

I cannot run my monitor at 1024*768 pixels. It is only allowed to run at 640*480
when i installed OS/2 v3.0. i haven’t installed win3x. Win95 runs at 1024…

How do i increase the desktop size?

I have looked for drivers at IBM with no luck as i beleive IBM do not support
OS/2 version 3.0 anymore? Do i install fixpaks to correct this problem? I am
running a S3 driver for a 1995 Veiwsonic Monitor.

Your help is appreciated

PMATM.DLL access violation

I just started getting this message whenever I try to use Describe or
FontFolder.   I have FP7 installed and all was well until I installed
Home Page Publisher and then uninstalled it.   I do not get this error
on my maintenance partition which is a basic Warp 4 install with FP7

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Canon Printer does not print w/print command

We just recently received 2 Canon BJC-7004 Bubble
Jet Color printers and we are not able to print
to them from the command using the print command.

We can only print while using OS/2 EPM editor.
Once the "print" command is issued all that
happens is it ejects a blank page or 2.

I check the properties and didn’t see anything
unusual, all are set to default settings.

The drivers installed are for Canon BJC-4100 and

Running OS/2 Warp 4 Fixpak 6.

Any ideas and suggestions?

XF86OS/2 Config Questions….

Running XF86OS/2 generally quite successfully (Warp 4, FP5) but have a
few configuration questions that I couldn’d quite find answers to in
TFM :)

1) To have X start up in a given res/colour depth, do I just change
the order of the resolutions in xf86config? E.g., put 1024x768x32 as
the first res.?

2) How do I configure X to display the desktop the same size as the
res? (I.e., e.g., res 1024×768, desktop size 1024×768)

3) Is there any way to configure startx to offer selection of wm to be

Any hints/help appreciated. TIA.

OS/2 won't run after new motherboard.

        I upgraded my system with a new motherboard, memory, slave HDD, and case. After the installation OS/2 boots with the stopwatch is just a one square inch black area on the screen. Desktop icons, and Warp Center then disappear the screen turns blue and a SYS3171 (insufficient stack space to process file) error appears. Also, I tried to install OS/2 on another partition but got an error message "Cannot find file message – *.msg" (or something similar).

        I think I have tried everything, jumpers, cables, conflicts, and BIOS settings. I have e-mailed the vendor tech support and am waiting for an answer. Anyone having the solution please post.
