DOS program blank screens

By bfadero ·
The OS being used is win 2K pro. The issue I have is when I run dos based programs and get it to full screen by typing alt+enter, the screen just goes black(blank)and there is no way of me exiting the program unless I physically power off the pc. If I were to run a dos program not in full screen, I would not have this problem so I was wandering if there is something I can do to take care of this. All other programs function fine.

For the first time try the alt+enter key combination for the dos command window.
If this work, it?s mean that dos programs what don?t work, for full screen need other settings. For example create shortcut icon on desktop. Right click on shortcut, select properties, go to option and select full screen. Also I see some dos programs, what need for full screen even other settings. Right click on shortcut, select font, and select the biggest font size. Save the settings with apply, and close the window. Reopen and now select from options the full screen. (this kind of settings work for a Foxpro for Dos application)
