The characters on the screen get garbled if you load a mouse menu in 43- line text mode using a Leading Edge D2 with monochrome display. The characters are readable, but the top two or three lines of pixels composing the characters are repeated beneath the characters (similar to a vertical ghost effect). This information applies to Microsoft Mouse Menus for MS-DOS systems.


Resetting the EGA into the 43-line mode corrects the problem temporarily. Run EGA.EXE with the argument EGA, or set switch 5 on the display adapter to the open position to disable the auto-mode selection feature (this process produces the same effect as the EGA EGA command).
