Right-click on My Computer, click Properties, and click on
the Device Manager tab. Click the + sign beside Display
adapter and see what is written there.

See this page on the Device Manager:

If it has the name of a video card made by a manufacturer
such as ATI or nVidia, you have the drivers installed, but
if the standard Windows VGA driver is installed, you need
to install the latest driver file for Windows 95 for that
make and model of video card.

You can idenity the video card by looking at it, or by
using one of these free utilities:

Belarc Advisor - creates an analysis of the hardware and
software on a computer -

http://www.belarc.com/ and
http://www.crucial.com/uk/support/belarc_download.asp

The Aida32 utility is no longer being developed, but
almost exactly the same program called Lavalys Everest
Home Edition, which is being developed, can be downloaded
from: http://www.lavalys.com/

You could also use Google to find a driver file by
entering the model of video card between double quote
marks if there is more than one word, followed by + driver
+ "windows 95".
