Windows 7: 640x280 game resolution problem

640x280 game resolution problem

My all 3d games are now viewing in 640x280 screen resolution, it wasn't like that before. I'm using Intel(R) HD Graphics Family graphics card that came inbuilt in my Notebook PC, My games run fine but now all Full-Screen 3d games are viewing in 640x280 screen resolution. Everything is fine with my PC but the games are viewing like that.
It all happened when I downloaded a game made for windows 3.x- windows 95, it viewed in 640x280 screen, I executed it on my machine and it freezed for a moment and started lagging, I closed it and lo! My screen became small with 640x280 screen resolution, I corrected it using the resolutions menu and it came back to normal, but when I run my games, all of them viewed in 640x280 screen, it wasn't like that before I run that old game. My games are stuck in that resolution and I can't change the resolution from the games'-settings. I think there's a problem in my windows screen-resolution settings, I don't know how I can change these settings but will you please explain all the possible solutions. I've attached the images, before and after that problem.

Have you tried a system restore to a point before that one game was installed that changed the resolution?

No, I recently found out that the System Restore was turned off on my computer, is there any other solution?

Have you tried going to Screen Resolution by Right Clicking on your desktop to see if it allows you to change back to native resolution?

That or uninstall the drivers and install a new set.

No, when I close the game, the resolution comes back to normal. I can uninstall the drivers but, from where I'll install them?

Isn't there any other solution? This problem is not for a particular game but all the full-screen games have become like this.
