Windows 7: Cant Adjust Screen Resolution after 7 install

Cant Adjust Screen Resolution after 7 install

well i downloaded Windows 7 and now everything is HUGE. It says the size of my monitor does not meet the requirements to run over 600 resolution. however, i have a monitor well capable of running that.

I have a dell 2300 and the only drivers i can find are for xp on their site. I have been told maybe the graphics card is not strong enough, however, it is only 4 years old. Is it that big of a deal.

I need some help. I am not currently at my computer but i will update with system stats. when i get back.

4 yrs old? That's probably why - it needs to support WDDM 1, preferably 1.1.

Type msinfo32.exe into the start menu, then select system summary and then choose file, export. Upload the txt file.

Welcome to Seven Forums. We will need to know your system specs in order to help you. So please fill them in. Here is a program that can help you with that Speccy - System Information - Free Download without knowing you specs it makes it extremely difficult to help. especially your Video card.
Please fill in all of them under userCP (top of page) scroll down second on left, edit system specs.
Thanks. Fabe
P.S. Next time please start your own thread instead of resurrecting an old one with 1,121 views you'll get more help that way.
