Can't get higher resolution than 1024x768

I just bought a laptop from a friend and I'm stupid so I don't know shit, but I know that the resolution should definitely get bigger than 1024x768. What is wrong, do I need new drivers or something?

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit.

Welcome to the forum,

Go to Device Manager and look under Display adapter, see if you can right click, update driver.

If that doesn't help, we could use some specs on your computer http://www.sevenforums.com/general-d...tml#post256049

to help you find one.

You need an updated driver for you graphics card.
There should be a label on your notebook containing a list of hardware in your computer.
With the name of your graphics card, use google search to find some updated drivers.

Thank you.

I tried to update drivers through device manager, but it says "Windows has determined the driver software for your device is up to date."

I've now updated more informations following that link, hope you can help me.

Ok, so I downloaded that driver and it says:

"NVIDIA installer cannot continue

The graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware."

Hmm...?

These are two different drivers, make sure you get the right one for you.
