Get the latest drives from the video card maker and make real sure they have the one for your monitor.

Install it all.

Maybe yes, maybe no. Depends on who made your video card.
Most mfgr. of video cards have a control panel for your card. Number 9 has an excellent one called Hawk.  I am currently using a Matrox and I have a little monitor icon in the lower right corner of the screen to adjust things.... (which is good becaue my card behaves differnently between '95 and NT... You didn't say what video card you had, so no answer yet.

It isnt the monitor border you wish to modify, it is the refreshrate/sweep frequency of the videocard.

Not depending on the Videocard. Its only under Win95.

Nope Jan, both TCH and j2 are right.
What you have to do now is to adjust AND STORE the monitor settings in each display mode. Most modern monitors can store a number of different settings, and depending on the way they're used by the video card (read: which settings are requested now) it will return to what it remembers to be the right settings for this mode.
So go to the DOS screen, adjust the size/location/shape of the display within the monitor's screen, AND STORE the settings (or wait until the on screen dialog box disappears).
Same within your Win95.
When you've done BOTH, your monitor will be a little smarter and return to the respective settings each time you switch.
