shrunken screen

I recently upgraded from 3.11 to 95.  Everything works OK except for the fact that my visible screen area has been shrunk to about 2/3 of its previous area, unless I go down to 16 colors, which then doesn't allow some programs to work at all.  I have a Sunshine CM-7 VGA monitor and a Trident TGUI9440AGi video card with 1 meg memory on a 586-120 machine.  The added annoyance is that I have to fiddle with the knobs in the back of the monitor each time I boot up Windows!

What has happen is that W95 uses a different refreshrate then win3.1 was using, that is cause for the diff in size... You only options are:

1.Try to find a W95 driver for your gfx card that allows to set another (lower) refresrate:

2. Replace your monitor.

Where on Earth would one find such a driver?  Trident no longer makes cards, so I can't call them.........

Hold everything!  I DID find a Win95 driver on a floppy that our local guru had overlooked.  Installed it and the setup works like a champ.  Thanks so much for your effort, and please up the grade, will you?
