HELP!!! IBM Works PIM Phonebook – Strange Error Message!!!

Hi, everyone!

I’m wondering if anyone might be able to give me some help or
advice on a strange problem that I’ve been having lately.

When I open the IBM Works PIM Phonebook, I’m getting a strange
error message to the effect that my CD-ROM drive is not ready!?!?

I can’t for the life of me see what the CD-ROM has to do with the
PIM Phonebook.

This problem has been occurring ever since I installed OS/2, so I
installed various FixPaks to see if that would cure the problem.

I’m now running Warp 4, FixPak 10, with the updated device drivers
from XR_D001, but the problem is still there.

Also, I’m using DaniS506.ADD instead of IBM1S506.ADD, because even
the updated version from XR_D001 will not read my 8.4GB HDD, and
anyway, changing back to IBM1S506.ADD made no difference to the
error.

Now, I understand that there are no new Device Driver FixPaks
available, and that Base Device Drivers have now been removed from
FixPaks after FixPak 10, so I don’t know what to do next.  I’m not
even sure if the problem lies somewhere in the CD-ROM driver, or
if it lies within IBM Works itself.

I’ve searched IBM’s web site for any fixes for IBM Works, but the
only ones I can find are for IBM Works Version 2.0 (the upgrade to
Version 2.1), not for Version 3.0, which comes with Warp 4.

Does anyone have any ideas on what I should do next?

Just in case it may be of any help, I have appended to the end of
this posting a text file showing the current CSD levels on my
system, as well as a copy of my CONFIG.SYS file.

Please Note:
———–
In order to display these files correctly, you will need to turn
line wrap off in your newsreader.

I would be most grateful for any advice I can get on this strange
and annoying problem.

Thanks in advance.

Best regards to all

sys0147

Warp 4, fixpack 12. I just had the shop install a second (8 GB) hard
drive. My system now has 64 MB of RAM, a 3 GB IDE hard drive and an 8 GB
IDE hard drive. But I think I have a problem. When I boot up, after all
my start-up programs are running, the hard drive keeps clicking away for
two or three minutes, and then I get a sys0147 error message:
"Not enough resources available to process this command. The process for
which this pop-up is displayed will end." I have made the largest
partition on my new 8 GB drive my swap file partition. This partition is
about 7 GB in size. When I run memsys it reports the following use of
system resources:

Physical memory free: 22 M
Virutal memory free: 16 M
Swap file size: 2048 K
Available swap space: 2630 M
Unused swap space: 1460 M
Active task count: 12
Process count: 21
Thread count: 91

I am reporting this without much understanding of what it means. For
sure I don’t understand why the addition of a second hard drive, which I
think should increase system resources, results in this error message. I
have not changed anything in my boot process from when I had but one
hard drive. And what is the command that I don’t have enough resources
to process?

Can anyone enlighten me on this?

Problems installing dual-boot OS/2 Warp4 /Win98 on Hard Disk

When I first booted from the updated disks (while the hard drive still
had Windows 98 installed), it took all three install disks without any
problems, and stops at a point where you can either continue the setup
from the OS/2 Warp 4 CD-ROM, or you can press "F3" for the command
prompt.

I need the command prompt to run FDISK so I can install "Boot Manager".

I ran FDISK from the OS/2 Command Prompt and deleted the existing
partitions then shut down and restarted.

Now I get an error at the exact point where it would normally tell me to

either insert the OS/2 CDROM in the drive, or Press F3 for the command
prompt.  The entire error windows reads….

- – - – -

OS/2 WARP 4 SYSTEM INSTALLATION

SYS0039: The C: Device is not ready

Return error code to program
End program/command/operation
Retry command or operation

- – - – -

No matter what option, it just keeps bringing up the same error.

Yet if I boot from a W95 boot disk and run FDISK, it’s fine.  Any
suggestions on how wold I find out any further information about this
error and the cause ??

The PC has the latest BIOS installed (it’s a Thinkpad 770Z with 14.1GB
Hard Drive).  I downloaded the OS/2 updated install disks from the
Thinkpad site for the exact model so I’m at a loss to know what it could

be.

So to summarise:
I have a a Thinkpad 770Z (9549-81A) which we require to
Dual-Boot OS/2 4.0 and Windows 95/98.  I want to partition the disk
with OS/2 Boot Manager to be able to boot from either operating system
as the primary partition (OS/2 can do this by the way), but with a third

partition available for shared data files (but not programs).  I have
the latest OS/2 updated install disks, but am getting the (above) error
when it is reading the third install disk…..  The BIOS has been
updated to the latest code.

Any help is appreciated, this is the first time I’ve been through this
process, so if you have any hints/tips on this, it would be appreciated.

My email address is ga…@nz1.ibm.com (please CC: me with any responses
if possible).

Thanks in advance,

Can't Install IBM Scrollpoint mouse. Scrollms.exe traps system.

Hi all,

I can’t get the latest v2.03 SCROLLMS.EXE to use with my new IBM
Scrollpoint mouse.  Following the instructions, I ran MOUINST.EXE only
to find that the Scrollpoint Object was not created on the Desktop, but
rather in my System Setup folder.

With the original MOUSE.SYS, the Scrollpoint mouse works like any
2-button mice, with the scrollstick deactivated.  However, after
installation of SCROLLMS.EXE, any click on the LMB or RMB or even
touching the scrollstick will produce a TRAP D.

Would appreciate any help from current Scrollpoint Mice owners
especially.

My configuration as follows:

Warp 4
FP 12
XFolder
TCPIP 4.1

Thanks in advance.

PAR1284.SYS and ECP

I’d swear I saw a message in this forum about the BIDI print driver
supporting an ECP port but I can’t seem to find the message.

I have the driver installed and it prints OK but it appears (at least
from RMVIEW) that it’s not using the DMA.  Win98 booted on the same
machine appears to know about the DMA.  Here’s the RMVIEW output:

Adapter: PARALLEL_0 Parallel Controller
Device Type: COMM-PARALLEL  Bus/Width: ISA 8 BIT
I/O = 0X0278  Len =   8  Flg = MULTIPLEXED Addr Lines = 16
IRQ Level =  5  PCI Pin = NONE  Flg = MULTIPLEXED

  Device: DESKJET 690C      PRINTER

I can’t find any documentation in the BIDI package about command line
parameters for the driver.  The INSTALL.TXT seems to imply that there
are some option settings but does not seem to document them.

I’m I benefiting from the DMA?  If not how can I convince the driver to
use it?

Thanks,

WinOS/2 Really Slow!

I haven’t used WinOs/2 in a while, using mainly OS/2 native programs,
however, I have noticed that in the last 6 months or so my performance
of WinOS/2 sessions, FS or Seamless, have gone to pot.  It takes over
1.5 minutes to open a session, on my machine –

Pentium II , 266mhz, 192 MB RAM, Warp 4.0 FP12, 18GB Disk, and Diamond
Stealth III S540 32MB video running the latest SDD Beta.  (BTW, the
problem occurred prior to switching video cards, used to run a Matrox
Millinium II with 4MB Ram and matrox drivers).

Any performance tips would be greatly appreciated.

Can't chkdsk a logical drive???

OK. I’ve got another strange one here.

Now for some reason, chkdsk on a 1098MB FAT16 partition within the 1024
cylinder boundary will not work. It returns the error

"Can’t write to the root of drive H or I"

It also gives the error 1377…

——————————————————————
SYS1377: The system is unable to write to the root directory on
drive ***.

EXPLANATION: A disk error was encountered while CHKDSK (with the /F
option) was attempting to update the root directory.

ACTION: Check the following:
o  The diskette is inserted correctly.
o  The diskette is not write protected.
o  The diskette is formatted.
——————————————————————–

The only thing I can think of is that H and I used to be where I had my
OS/2 installation.  I merged some partitions and remade INI’s so as the
setup went down to F and G.

I used a utility the zeroes the disk, recreated the partitions and
restored from backups with no luck.

Any ideas?

Can't fix Warp 3

I am trying to bring an elderly P90 back into use, and install Warp 3
on it. Installation is fine (I was using it for Warp 3 until a couple
of years ago) but I can’t apply a fixpack. It’s a UK English copy of
Warp, so I downloaded the UK English Fixpack 40 disk images. Whether
I try following the do-it-by-hand instructions from IBM, or using
SimpleFix, the thing grinds to a halt at the service screen – no
serviceable components appear and all options remain greyed out.

Help and advice gratefully received!

Trap000e.

When I re-installed Warp 4, I elected to "Update (MS)Windows Desktop
when updating WinOS/2 Desktop" in the advanced features of WinOS/2
setup.  I’m running TCP/IP 4.1 (MTPS 8620 update) and had no problem
running Windows 3.1 version of Navigator and Agent Newsreader using
winsock after the initial install.

I recently decided to re-install WinOS/2 to get rid of the (MS)Windows
Desktop updating.  After re-installing, I get a trap000e whenever I
try running anything that requires winsock.dll (it is in the
x:\tcpip\dos\bin directory).

Any ideas what has changed in the WinOS/2 area that might be causing
this problem?  Thanks.
