Windows 7: Screen on older computer

Screen on older computer

I have an older Dell Laptop on which I used XP for years. When 7 came out the MS test said I couldn't run 7 but I installed it anyhow. It runs just fine without the fancy graphic effects but the screen is distorted so that everything is just a little stretched widthwise. Is there any workaround that would allow me to see things they way they'd appear if there were a better driver?

Right click on your desktop, select screen resolution, and tell is what the numbers say. Eg. 1280x768. What is the make and model number?

Hi mhmiller,

'Inspiron B130' is not tested to work with 'Windows 7'; hence no 'Windows 7 compatible drivers' available on 'Dell Support Website'. This unit was built with 'Intel Graphics Video' (Intel 915GM based system). You may also refer to the following article on 'Intel website' about the availability of 'Windows 7 tested driver' for this video: Graphics — Running Windows 7* on older Intel graphics products

Hope this helps.
