Windows 7: Toshiba Satellite A215-7437 Resolution Problem

Toshiba Satellite A215-7437 Resolution Problem

I just upgraded to Windows 7 and when it first started up I noticed the colors are very dull, compared to my other two computers with 7. The display also seems a little big. I think my native resolution is 1280x1024. But when I go to change the resolution I am only presented with two options. 1024x768 and 800x600. I've looked everywhere on the internet and can't figure it out. Before I upgraded to 7 I was on Vista and I had ATi Catalyst Control Center. But after the switch I did not have that software and I tried to download and install it. Which I did, but there is no actual program to open up like I had before. I just have all of the files in the folders but nothing useful.

There you can see the folders I have in my ATi folder, probably doesn't help much. But there is no cli.exe, ccc.exe, and no MOM.exe. All of the ones I could think of from when I had Vista.

I don't necessarily need Catalyst CC...but I would love to change my resolution because it's kind of blurry and not sharp like I want it to be. Is it possible to just download a random driver or something to take the place of it?

I figured it out, I hadn't done the Windows Updates yet. Once the updates were complete and restarted everything went to normal. Thanks for the input though!
