New Board Messing Up Old Apps?

    Hello, so far my Z68X-UD3-B3 has been great, but I wonder if it's
    responsible for some of my old apps not displaying correctly. There are
    some ancient DOS programs I still like to use, and some old CGA games I
    still like to play. Most of the hardware in my system is still the same,
    just a new MB, new CPU, new RAM. Some of my old programs (and a couple
    old games) invoke the old-school Borland Graphics Interface (BGI).
    For some reason when these files load, the default graphics font is
    messed up. The first 64 characters (excluding the '0' character for some
    reason) are all blocks of garbage pixels.
    I feel like I can rule out the video card because for one, I had the
    same card before and after this problem, but also, just a few days ago I
    went from NVIDIA to ATI, and it happens with both.
    Any ideas as to what's going on?

    TIA,
    Brian
