Specs: Windows 95 (Cant find other info)
Well I dug through some old stuff and found a
copy of Win95, So I opened the jewel case put it
in the drive on my XP laptop, Started Virtual
Machine software and installed it. Works
perfectly except one thing: IT ONLY HAS 16
COLOURS!

You need to install Windows 95 video drivers for the video card that you are using. It no different than if you were installing Windows 95 as a stand alone or in a virtual machine. It cannot use the video drivers for the host Operating System.

Being that Win95 is 15 yrs old, it's possible that no drivers are available for your graphics card (or IGP). It depends on the age of your laptop.

I don't know where to get the drivers (if compatble with Win95)

A marvellous thing is Google!

The manufactures web site is usually a good place to start for anything.
