Windows 7: Native resolution

30 Nov 2010   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Native resolution

I just recently bought a brand new computer which forced me to switch from Vista to 7. It wasn't a bad change, just a bit overwhelmed by how things are set up now.
The most annoying change is 7 will only give me two options when it comes to screen resolution. 1024x768 and 800x600. Both of these resolutions make me really just plain sick from how blurry it is, and I can't get any work done at all because the screen stretches everything. I'd really like to get back to my 1440x900.
I've tried downloading a driver of intel (Really missing NVIDIA right about now) but all that does is spam tab my firefox. So I'm at a loss of what to do. Any suggestions?

(I'm also not computer savvy at all, so I'll probably ask for explanations of what you say )
