Thanks for the tip roenano; I gave it a shot and unfortuneatley, I see no change. When I go to the device manager and try to update the drivers
for the VGA controller automatically, Windows says the drivers are already up to date.
Another thing that may be helpful is that I used to run XP on the same notebook and under XP, it would identify the graphics card as the GeForce Go
6200 instead of "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter", So I don't think it has to do with the notebook itself. Still, I've been wrong before...
