Windows 7: 1280x1024 32 bit with Standard VGA Driver?

1280x1024 32 bit with Standard VGA Driver?

Hi guys,

Is there any way to force the Standard VGA Driver to display in 1280x1024 32bit? If I look at the modes available, then I find 1280x1024, but only in 16bit.

I have an old Nvidia GeForce2 MX/400, and after installing the XP drivers I was able to run at 1280x1024 in 32bit, but I was getting some crashes in nv4_mini.sys when trying to install DVDFab. "The Internet" tells me that this is due to the XP drivers, so I uninstalled them again and rolled back to the Standard VGA Driver and was able to install the software. But now I am limited to 16bit again.

So, is there any way to force this?

Regards,
Brett.

Hey Brett

You should be able to run in 32bit in win 7 if you did in xp. You cant force an xp driver to work in win 7 reliably but there should be a vista driver for your vid card and that can be installed in compatibility mode which would let you run 32 bit

I think that there isn't any Vista driver for MX400...

Exactly - I should be able to install and use them, and it worked more or less for ages. But when I was installing DVDFab windows crashed due to the XP drivers. Replacing the drivers with the standard VGA driver caused the crash to disappear, but now I can only display 16bit, thanks to the standard VGA driver and its supported modes.

You're right - there aren't any that I have been able to find so far.
