This is why a detailed web site was supplied.

The supplied link supplied how to edit this file, what can be in it and more.

Many don't read the reference material or supplied links. As such, my response will be Greek.

To get one warped screen less, edit MSDOS.SYS to contain a line Logo=0 in the options section.

http://support.microsoft.com/support/ kb/articles/q226/1/12.asp is one of the MSKB articles that tells you how to edit the file (using Notepad for instance).

If your only problem now is one strange screen at boot, I would leave it as it. Happy computing!

Check through the "PCGuide" for video use and troubleshooting at the MS-DOS mode. What 'ur seeing is the switch between when the system boots and the Windows GUI interface takes over.
