View Full Version : MSDOS programs going full screen on New Laptops

I need to run a MSDOS program on a laptop computer. The problem is on all the laptops I have tried (in the Toshiba range at least) dont full up all the avaliable screen size anymore.
The MSDOS program displays information that is feed to a Video overlay device conected to the external VGA port of the laptop, but it dosent overlay on to the Video properly because of the reduced screen area the MSDOS image occupies.
Is this a hardware problem? Is there a software solution to getting Dos to occupy the full screen again or does someone know of a new laptop that still displays good old MSDOS programs to the full area of the screen.
