Video Card Problem

For some reason everything on my screen is large, like its zoomed in. I checked if its my screen resolution, but it seems that my problem has to deal with my graphics card or something like that. I did some researching and I found that someone on this forum basically had the same problem as me, and their problem was resolved

Zoom Problem

but when I click on the link that provided the solution I get a list of things to download. I just need to know what is the exact driver I have to download. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It'd be easier to discuss drivers if you could tell us what your graphics card is.

That's sufficient.

See this:

Graphics — Older Intel® graphics controllers and Microsoft Windows 7* operating system

Short version: Intel has not produced Windows 7 (or Vista) drivers for your onboard graphics. You may be able to get XP drivers to install, but they will not support Aero Glass effects. (Aero glass isn't essential, but then again, neither is upgrading from XP to Win7.)

If you feel that you want the full Windows 7 experience, post additional information about your system. We may be able to recommend an inexpensive add-on graphics card that will support Win7 for you.
