Hp Pavilion dv5000 Windows 7 32bit stuck in 1024 X 768 reso

Pretty much the thread topic..upgraded from XP to 7 today and can't seem to up my resolution. Tried updating the drivers but they all say up to date. Went to HP's site to try and update the drivers but there's no option for Windows 7..just XP and Vista naturally lol but yeah just trying to expand the screen a bit cuz it looks off.

I have the same laptop and I never had any issue with the resolution...

You need the legacy ATI Catylist control center and mobility moder.

The link is this wonderful thing called google.... I am not going to do the foot work for you... Just saying. Also why are you not running x64 bit windows 7 on the laptop?

Simply because I upgraded from a 32 bit XP to 32 bit 7 and didn't want to really. But tried looking for it but all I came up with was ATI Catalyst but as I'm upgrading old drivers to a completely new OS I'm not exactly sure what I should be looking for hence the link question. I downloaded the drivers from the said link but it didn't change anything and I don't wanna waste my space on my hard drive downloading "could be" driver software and have to spend time removing all of it.
