    I have an IBM ThinkPad ( 1171-1vu ) that had Win ME which I thought was
    buggy clunky.

    I formatted my hard drive which removed Win ME.

    I then installed Win98SE. It installed properly except for one thing, the
    monitor is set for 620x480 which is a terrible quality.

    It presently will not let me set it for a higher value. Do I need a new
    driver? And if so how do I go about installing it?
