laptop problems

By earlmiller ·
This is a CTX International
model EzBOOK 700E series !

I just installed Win98 first edition as a portable type installation.

I cannot get more than 16 colors (640x480) pixels resolution .

What should I do to get 800 x 600 ?

I don't have any documentation or installation software for this unit.

Never did a laptop before, need help !

Reinstall the video card. Windows 98 is pretty much plug and play, but your card may not be. If you don't have the drivers, you can usually download them from the net. Check the manufactures site for 1)the laptop or 2)the video card. You can reinstall the card via control panel/display/settings/display type. After it is installed, you will have to reboot your system. When it restarts you will see the video settings screen, where you can change the display to 800x600. You must test the settings before applying them. Good luck!

Sounds like Win98 doesn't have the right drivers for your laptop display. The following link should have what you need:
