I have Acer 5052 bought and being used in India. I have an application that runs in DOS Mode. When get on to DOS mode and run my application, at every key-in my screen flickers. Whereas, if I disable the battery from hardware control panel, it works fine..
Is there any solution or where exactly the problem rest..

It depends on what application is causing the full screen mode. Try one of the following
- hit Esc key
- Hold Alt button, while pressing Tab - this will bring up all applications that are running - you can select the desktop.
- press Alt and F3 buttons together - this will close the application that is running in full screen.
Now that's a program I've not worked with in a while ;-) I haven't used it since my early high school days in the 1990s. Turbo is a really old application that has been around for ages- unfortunately, being as such, it is only capable of developing 16-bit DOS applications, which has, for better or worse, gone the way of the dinosaur. In the x64-bit versions of Windows Vista and 7, all 16-bit native support has actually gone out the window in favor of 32-bit and 64-bit application development. This is why DosBox was invented- it is a true 16-bit DOS environment (much like command.com and CMD.exe used to be) that is capable of running all the older DOS programs that are no longer compatible with Windows. When you run Turbo from the DOSbox program, press ALT-ENTER and it will fullscreen whatever you're working with. Hope this helps, - Vern
You say that the computer works in safe mode. This indicates that there is probably something running that is interfering with your mouse and keyboard. Run MSCONFIG from the command line and go to the startup tab. Disable all the items and restart in normal mode. See if that makes an improvement. If it does, then you can go into MSCONFIG and re-enable stuff as needed until you find the one program/utililty that is messing things up. As for the battery, if you unplug the computer, does it keep running? If so, the battery is probably OK. If it stops, you need a new battery. If the battery is fairly new, then you might have a different problem, but let's try this other stuff first.
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.
