    Ok, very important here: Are you actually running Dos, or are you running the "dos"-platform on top of XP? If you are using command prompt from XP directly, there is an entirely different set of considerations.


    a.) What version of Dos are you using?
    b.) How are you accessing it? Booting into it at startup?
    c.) Do you have a Dos LCD driver? You know, LCDs were not exactly well used (around) when Dos was in heavy demand. 


    If you let me know these three questions, I can tell you what to do. (Oh, as for Q.C, there are Dos drivers for most anything these days, but you have to know where to look, as often they are a "purist"-computer need and not generally looked for. There may even be some Abandonware sites with what you need... look up Abandonware, Dos and LCD in an engine and see what you get).

The application is trying to control the video-card, setting a resolution, e.g., 800-by-60, and a refresh rate, e.g., 72 Mhz, that your monitor does not support. So, your monitor displays "out of frequency".

Click with the second (usually the right) mouse-button on the icon, and choose "Properties", and force the video-resolution to a supported value.

I have 3 acer al1603w widescreen monitor.. it was working ok before, then i let my brothers used them. afterwhich it is displaying "input not supported". WHOAAA!?!!? what do i do? its bugging me for 3 days...


Sounds like somebody messed with the monitor setup on the monitor controls. Check the manual to set it up correctly. If they changed the monitor's Frequency settings, the problems you are having will occur. Gotta set them back to 70Hz and check the other settings. If you need a manual, get back to me with the exact model number of the monitor.

Hal.dll error after booting


HAL - Hardware Abstraction Layer (hal.dll)
HAL is Microsoft’s abbreviation for the Hardware Abstraction Layer, the technology and drivers that let the Windows NT, 2000, and XP operating systems communicate with your PC’s hardware. HAL is one of several features–along with the NT file system (NTFS) that replaced the much less secure MS-DOS–that make NT-based operating systems more secure and reliable than Windows 95, 98, and Me.
HAL.dll prevents applications from directly accessing your PC’s system memory, CPU, or hardware devices (such as video and sound cards)–a method that can prevent many device conflicts and crashes. Unfortunately, HAL.dll sometimes also slows or stops DOS games and programs, which need to load their own memory managers or control hardware directly for better performance.
With HAL.dll in the way, developers must rewrite or even abandon their older software in favor of newer, HAL-compatible versions. Microsoft has pressured hardware makers to provide or support technologies such as MMX, DirectX, and 3D graphics language OpenGL, all of which allow fast but indirect access to the advanced high-performance features of video, sound, and CPU hardware. Such access also makes for a better visual experience when using Windows for Web and productivity applications; improved graphics performance is evident all over Windows XP’s new user interface.
XP also offers some new compatibility-mode features that let you run programs meant to run under earlier operating systems, but, frankly, most DOS-based and even some Windows-based games simply won’t work with the new OS.

I need to download a program that requires windows and my computer says the program wont run in dos mode how do i get it to work?


if the program requires windows that means it was design to work with windows and not with DOS.. you may want to get an old version of the program that will actually run under DOS.. usually you may be able to do the opposite which is to run DOS program on windows.

if possible try to get a DOS version of the program you are trying to run, or better.. upgrade your operating sytem so you can run your program and possibly other DOS programs.

post the program you are looking to download and confirm what operation system you're running and I'll try to look for it with you.

Running a dos batch file in background in windows


Batch file for what?

I once ran across a software called Dosbox that I used to run a customers dos based notes program in XP. It worked well, not sure about batch files, but worth a shot I suppose.

You can find info on it here - http://dosbox.sourceforge.net/

PC is frozen when I press WIN-key


Do you see the Hard Disk Light ON during the time your computer is frozen? If that is the case there maybe an issue with the Hard Disk Controller.

When you installed a new version of Windows XP, did you format your entire Hard disk? (Just to make sure that your computer doesn't have a viral infection?)

Also, is it that the computer freezes when you press Alt+Enter ...or is it like the computer freezes after you press the Windows Key and then Alt+Enter?

Have you tried the Alt+Tab Combination?
