I was reading an article the other day that said that interrupts are among the slowest instructions. I am searching for another way to write to the screen without using DOS. I have been looking into using stosw to access screen memory, but I haven't been able to figure it out yet. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

For which platform? DOS, Win32, linux, ... ?

For DOS, use VESA and get hold of the linear framebuffer.
For win32, use DirectX
For linux... get a better OS ;P, or use svgalib, SDL, PTC, X, or the framebuffer stuff

http://burks.brighton.ac.uk/burks/language/asm/asmtut/asm8.htm has some sample programs which show various ways of writing to the screen. They're not written for FASM, but should be easy to port.
