Windows 7: Dell Optiplex GX270 Windows 7 Graphics Driver

Dell Optiplex GX270 Windows 7 Graphics Driver

Hi,
I own a Dell Optiplex GX270 and I recently upgraded it from Windows XP to Windows 7 Ultimate. The problem is, everything on the screen is way too big, and I am not able to change the screen resolution. I am currently looking for a driver that I am able to use with this computer. I have tried going into BIOS setup and changed Integrated Devices (LegacySelect Options) and changed the Onboard Video Buffer from 1mb to 8mb, but that didn't work either.
System Specs:
3.0GHz
2GB Ram
40GB Hard Drive

-Tayler

P.S I know on my profile it says I have an acer and that my computer is a laptop but this GX270 is a computer that I am selling.

Sounds like there is no graphics driver loaded. Is there a graphics driver in Windows Update?

Well I checked in the properties for the driver. There is one installed. No there is not an update in Windows update. I have tried installing one, but whenever I uninstall the old driver I have to restart my computer. After the restart the second I login it says its reinstalled it but I dont want it to reinstall.

There may not be a Windows 7 driver for the graphics hardware in the GX270

There should be. I installed one once that worked. But the download was removed and I lost it because I had to format the drive.
