Windows 7: Resolution stuck at 640X480.

Resolution stuck at 640X480.

Hi. My screen resolution is stuck at 640X480 after installing windows 7 on my desktop PC. I have a Intel 845 Chipset M\B (D845GVSR). I went to intel's website but there is no support nor drivers for this motberboard. Windows did load a driver but when I try to change the resolution it is greyd-out. I have a LG Flatron L1720B screen and onboard GFX.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

JP

If you did a clean install, did you install the mobo drivers?

Was not quite sure where to post the thread so I posted it in Driver and GFX cards. The problem with the M\B drivers is that it is designed for Windows XP. I did went to the Intel website and looked for my M\B drivers for Windows 7 but there is none. Thank you for all your feedback guys. I also let windows 7 search for an updated version of my onboard GFX driver but it said that the one installed is already up to date.

I solved the problem with the help of Sirdan's post from the other forum. This is what I did. I went to the site that Sirdan suggested for my Intel M\B drivers. I downloaded the onboard video driver and saved it to my desktop. Unzipped the folder and went to device manager. i uninstalled the driver that windows 7 had gave it and restarted the PC. After the PC was in windows again I went back to device manager and double clicked on the video driver (which had a indicator next to it) Went to driver tab, update driver. I browsed for the driver that i unzipped to my desktop and went to the win2000 folder. It started to install the driver and after a while the screen went black and came on again. After the installation I could set the resolution to anything that I wanted to.

Thanks again for all the help guys! Really appreciated it
