The following test sequence will verify that your table display is working properly. Before you start this procedure, you must install the table display correctly as outlined under the INSTALLATION section. The functional test should be done under MSDOS command prompt by booting up the computer in DOS mode, or shell out to DOS prompt (in Window95/98/ME) or COMMAND prompt (in Windows NT/2000).

This test procedure assumes the table display is connected to COM1 of the computer. If COM2 is being used, type COM2 where COM1 is called out.
Close all opened application programs that use the same COM port before shelling out to DOS COMMAND prompt. Enter the following command lines to open the COM port for communication with the table display:
Type “MODE COM1 96,N,8,1” and press the ENTER key.
