Size of the picture on the monitor

by rapheek / January 22, 2008 10:24 PM PST


I have a Compaq Presario 2500. I have a problem with the monitor. As we say "a picture is worth a 1000 words", I added a link to my perso webpage to see what I mean.

Thanks for your help.

This is not happening in windows mode, but in DOS mode, at the startup

There is no fix for this issue for DOS.

It's an effect we see in some machines. Since no one runs dos anymore the makers don't fix this. Hint? It requires a BIOS that fixes it.
