Word 5.00: Screen Jumps Around with EGA or VGA

PSS ID Number: Q44885 Article last modified on 11-02-1994




Selecting display mode 2 (43-line text mode) on computer systems using an EGA or VGA graphics card, MS-DOS version 4.0 or 4.01, and the ANSI.SYS screen driver can cause the Microsoft Word for MS-DOS version 5.0 screen to appear to jump around.

A possible workaround to this problem is to remove the line DEVICE=[path]/ANSI.SYS from the CONFIG.SYS file.

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in MS-DOS versions 4.0 and 4.01. This problem cannot be corrected by any modification to the Word program.
