Default Change colors?

We have at our shop a Windows 98 computer that serves as our alignment machine computer. The BIOS is locked, and the boot sequence is set to boot from the alignment software disc. I can only assume that the disc accesses the windows environment on the harddrive, but the only program that appears is the alignment software.

My problem is this: The color setting is set too low (under 256 colors). The alignment procedure images are not well defined. I believe the monitor frequency is also incorrect. There are vertical lines on the screen at all times.

My question is this: If I were to create a DOS 7 boot CD, is there a way to use Edit.com to change the color configuration? I'm not too worried about the monitor frequency, since I'm almost positive this connot be changed in DOS, or am I wrong?

contact the manufacturer. they will probably deny your request since it is a tool, not a gaming console.

It seems to me that the program you are using is pretty much its own operating system if its booting up without seeing a Win '98 loading screen. That means there should be a setting within the program itself if any at all for that.
I wish I could buy people for what they're worth and sell them for what they think they're worth.
