Windows 7: graphics card?

graphics card?

I bought an HP Pavilion p6140f Desktop PC 12/09, it came with a Windows 7 upgrade. It worked great then my screen resolution went blurry. I kept installing driver updates for Intel G33/G31 Express. But it kept reverting back to blurry. I also lost Media center and wasn't able to play back anything I recorded. Talked with HP they said the Motherboard needed to be replaced. They replaced it, I installed Vista Service pack 1 & 2 and did all the the updates and installed the Windows 7 upgrade.
It was crystal clear for 36 hours. Now I feel I need new glasses to see the screen. Is the Intel G33/G31 Express not compatable with Windows 7? Should I just get a new Video card and if so which one is the best?

Try disabling Aero. Does that help you?
