Display problums on toughbook cf-47 HELP!!!

I have recently perchased a used CF-47. But I guess you need cirtain drivers for your computer to work and use all of its functions properly. This is my problum, After the computer boots up everything is good but the display wont get any bigger than 640 by 480 pixels. It wont let me change the screen area when I go to the display settings. I think its because I dont have the right driver installed. I also cant cange the color setting it only stays on the 16color, I need it to be at 256. How do I get that to change? I have a toughbook CF-47KY8GAAM and am running windows 98. If any one can tell me what to do about this problum Or what drivers I need to install I would be greatfull.

Thanks a bunch Dane R

Use the Restore CDs.

They have the proper drivers.

If you lost those CDs, you'll have to poke around on the maker's website for all the drivers that don't come with the OS you are installing.
