I have a COMPAQ Armada M700 which I just purchased through an Internet auction site whose name everyone would quickly recognize (it rhymes with "freeway").

The computer arrived with no operating system, no files, no nothing. I have installed Windows 95 (using the set of 14 3.5" floppies), and now my monitor image is a small rectangle (about 25% of the total screen area) centered in the middle of the screen. I suspect I need some sort of video driver (?) but I don't know squat about this stuff. What should I do?
