You will need to adjust your monitor during the boot process. For example, when it shows that first splash screen of Compaq, you will need to adjust either a knob on the monitor to move the screen, or press the correct buttons to move the screen back to it's original position.

Dunno what caused it to forget it's settings, perhaps a storm hit it with a small burst of electricity? I am guessing.

Anyway, you may have to try it a few times before you can get it, so prepare to be booting again and again. The reason why this can be messed up while the regular windows is correct is that your monitor enters different video states during boot. Showing a splash screen and dos text is one mode, windows is another... so adjusting it in dos shouldn't affect the appearance in windows.

If it does, just leave the splash screens off-center, it won't hurt anything.
