garbled text in dos graphics screen!
Posted on 1997-11-18
I'm really hoping this is an old problem that I just haven't been able to
find an answer to. I am using a simulations package that runs in a DOS
screen (full-screen mode) and ultimately plots results in a graphics screen
that (I assume?) is in vga mode. The problem is that the text on these
screens (for menu options, axis labels, etc.) is completely garbled and
"smeared" so that it is unreadable.
It may be related that during setup of NT, the text on my screen is nearly
unreadable, and completely so after moving my mouse over the text. A strange
"smearing" takes place in a region around the mouse. Has anyone else seen
this? What is the cause of this strange problem?
