Make sure you are using a good reference when you use interrupts. Also, try to reduce the number of instructions you use.

;set the video mode to CGA 80 x 25, 16-color
mov ax, 0300h
int 10h

;wait for a keypress
mov ah, 1
int 21h

;clear the screen to a specific character attribute
mov ax, 0600h  ; scroll all lines up == clear screen
mov bh, 07h    ; light gray on black
mov cx, 0      ; upper-left = 0, 0
mov dx, 184Fh  ; lower-right = 24, 79
int 10h

Hope this helps.
