When you fly in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2000 Professional Edition, the text in the gauges or control panels of certain aircraft may be distorted or incorrectly displayed.
This behavior can occur if video caching or shadowing is enabled in the Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) settings for your computer.
To resolve this issue, disable video caching or shadowing in the BIOS settings for your computer.
For information about how to do this, please see the printed documentation for your computer or motherboard, or contact the manufacturer of your computer or motherboard.

Video caching or shadowing is a common BIOS feature that copies the video BIOS code from the video adapter to an unused area of the computer's main memory. This feature can increase video performance for older video adapters that use a slow video BIOS read-only memory (ROM) module.
The video BIOS for newer video adapters, especially for AGP-based video adapters, is much faster than the computer's main memory. If a newer PCI-based or AGP-based video adapter is installed in your computer, you can improve video performance and avoid video problems by disabling video caching or shadowing.
