First try going thru the Windows update to see if it offers any driver. If not then right click on the My Computer icon and select Properties. Under the hardware Tab you want to go into the Device Manager. From there select the Video. Click on the Driver Tab and select the Update driver and see if it will search online for a new driver.

There might just not be a new driver since it is Windows 95. That hasnt been supported by M$ since XP was released in 2002.

First of all, try the suggestions above.

If they don't work, you'll have to find what model your graphics card is. Then, go onto the internet and search for any downloadable drivers for your card.

Finally, did your laptop come with any special system discs? If so, then try those first.

All computers have video cards, either seperate or onboard.

Windows XP would run a bit slowly on a Compaq Armada 7700DMT. Plus, it's a bit expensive too.

But if you want to go ahead with it, then I see no reason why not.
