I had no problems with any laptop I tried.
Can you connect yours to a standard VGA monitor?
Seems like your problem is related to the laptop's peculiar video settings.
May be install Win 3.1 / 95 and run in a DOS box?

> I got David Keil's emulator to run, but the video was all messed up. Tried different screen refresh rates, and sync on and off, but didn't clear it up. All the setup screens worked flawlessly, just the CC3 screen was bad. I didn't try to change CC3 screen modes... darn, that's probably all I need to do!! I didn't get it to recognize the disk drive either. The docs are not very helpful. I did get the floppy controller in slot one, and the HD controller in slot 2 of the MPI.

I might plug in a standard monitor and see if the emulators will display correctly. At least that will let me know it's a hardware problem with the laptop display and the emulator is running.
