Does windows 7 support 1280 x 1024

I just wanted to ask why i can't play some RTS games or any games in general in 1280 x 1024 resolution?

I use to have windows vista 64 and games could play on that resolution with out any problem but when i updated to windows 7 they stoped.

Is there something i have to install in order for this to work in windows 7?

P.S--I have already updated my drivers..
Please help, thank you.

its your video card and drivers that dictate the resolution. Windows 7 will have no say in it. so it should work if it did before

Maybe if you got a newer video card it would run in higher res? I have mine at 1920x1080 (god I love HD) with no problems so you just might need a newer card.

Yes they do (and probably the same as the one from HP. Where do you think HP gets the driver from?). Start here,

Graphics Drivers & Software

select 32 bit or 64 bit Windows 7, then select Mobility Radeon, then select Mobility Radeon HD 3200 Series and download the Catalyst 9.9. That one should get you up and running.
