    DisplayMate Professional for DOS Features    

Product Photo DisplayMate Professional is a DOS based comprehensive video system hardware diagnostic that tests every aspect of the computer's video system including: monitor, video board hardware and registers, Video BIOS, and Video Data Areas. It is our top-of-the-line diagnostic utility and supports high-resolution SuperVGA modes, enhanced documentation and report generation, and Command Scripts to automate the program execution. The DOS environment is necessary in order to test the video hardware directly, but it can launch from Windows.
