(Well, I think corruption is the word :P)

Whenever I use DOS based programs on my Windows 98 PC, they always have problems, and makes games so ugly that they're unplayable really. It is worse on low resolution programs like DOOM and the BIOS, but it does not happen at all on the desktop except for the mouse (lol?) All I have tried is updating BIOS and it didn't help.
Specs:
1024x768 LCD
Radeon 9250
AMD K6-2 400
ASUS Puma SPAX-M motherboard
WD Caviar AC28400
Antec Earthwatts 650W
OPTi SuperSound32
256MB RAM

distortions like that point towards video ram.

 

I would start with your video card.

I have tried reseating the video card, do you think I could have damaged it when moving it into a case?

Possibly, since computer parts are very sensitive. Try it with another card and see if it works.
