Colors change abnormally in version 5.1 of WordPerfect running under MS-DOS version 5.0.


This problem occurs if you load the EGA.SYS device driver in the CONFIG.SYS file on a system with an EGA video adapter. When you installed MS-DOS 5.0, the Setup program may have added the following line to your CONFIG.SYS file:
This line may cause abnormal color changes in the view document or print preview modes of WordPerfect 5.1 when loaded in conjunction with a Microsoft Mouse driver.


To solve the problem, remove or remark out the EGA.SYS line in the CONFIG.SYS file.
