 ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
This is the disk that has the driver on it.  The windows SVGA 640x480 256 
color driver should do the trick. If for some reason this will not work, 
or you don't have the Windows disks available, look in the manual that 
came with the notebook and see what type of display adapter (chip set) 
your notebook is using.  Chances are that manufacturer will have a 
website were you can download the appropriate driver.  If any disks came 
with your computer, they probably also have the driver you need.
