Video device failed to initialize for full screen mode


Wagner Plais

Hi folks,

When I try to run MSDOS applications under Windows XP Professional and a
press ALT+ENTER keys to swith to the full screen mode the applications stop
running. It happens even with the EDIT application. It seems the keyboard
freezes and doesn´t respond to any event, after that all I can do is to
press the ALT+ENTER keys and switch back to windows mode to terminate the
application. I am also receiving the following message: "The video device
failed to initialize for full screen mode". Does anybody know what can be
done to make the MSDOS applications run in full screen mode.

Thanks in advance,
Wagner Plais.
