On certain machines, Setup can conflict with the video hardware and
display a partial, scrambled, or condensed screen.
To work around this problem, attempt to print the screen by pressing
the SHIFT+PRINT SCREEN keys. If the printout shows a readable screen,
the Setup program can be completed by printing each screen as it
appears and following the instructions on the printouts.
On certain machines, it may be necessary to use a key combination
other than SHIFT+PRINT SCREEN. Possible combinations include
CONTROL+PRINT SCREEN or PRINT SCREEN by itself. CAUTION: Other key
combinations can toggle printer echoing of the screen output.
This workaround may not work on some machines because of different
PRINT SCREEN interrupt handlers or corrupted video memory.
