How can I make my 256 color resolution work on Windows95?

I changed from Windows3.1 to Windows95. I never had a problem with using a higher resolution on Windows3.1. Now that I have Windows95 installed and I try to change to the higher resolution my screen acts odd. It locks up, the cursor becomes a large square and the screen is unreadable. My display driver is and older version from Cirrus Logic. Where can I obtain this driver information. I can't use the original disks for Windows3.1 because now the computer indicates that they can't be used with Windows95. What can I do to fix this problem?

Go into Windows Setup in the control panel and use the standard svga (if that's what you're using)Windows drivers. Also how much memory is installed on your video board?

   Cirrus has put up a site to address the drivers problem in Windows and provide several upgraded ones.  Access this URL and the rest should be self-explanatory.
