Dell C600 & Win 98se

  JohnR08 11:51 06 Apr 2010

So I tried Linux puppy and it seems OK, but I've decided to go back to Windows.
I only have my W98se disc which I've now reloaded onto my Dell, but for some reason the screen isn't full size. The only options are 16 colours or 2 colours and the screen size is 800 x 640 and shows as a small box in the middle. i can;t adjust it to anything else.
Any ideas? Am I missing a driver somewhere or did I do something wrong on the re-install?

as always - all help and advise gratefully received.

You haven't installed the drivers for the graphics card. See if these are available for download from Dell's website, unless you have a drivers disk that came with the PC.

I don't have the driver disc that came with it.
Any ideas??
Google search takes me all over the show, but nothing specific.

Download and run Belarc (comes up as adviser.exe), this will tell you what graphic card you have.Do a search for the drivers.
