Intel 845g and Windows 7

Hey guys I got a problem. I just installed Windows 7 and it was flawless...except for the part where my screen resolution sucks. My graphics card is an Intel 845g. I have tried a lot of things but I just can't figure it out. The resolution is 640X480 and I can't adjust it. Please help.

thanks,

JackRick

I have used the utility and this is the message that it gives me:
"An Intel device was detected but your operating system is not supported by this utility. Please visit Download Center to look for available software. "

You'll need to select your operating system...

Welcome to seven forums. Sometimes your resolution will appear as it is do to the fact you need to install a driver for your monitor if one is avalible. This one is for XP 32bit if your running the 64 bit 7 you'll need to select XP 64bit. The driver will have to be installed in compatibility mode. Compatibility Mode Now this will only help if your monitor is reconized in device manager as standard VGA. Hope this will help.

@FZ21Z: I have looked in the Intel download center but my graphis card can no longer be used in Windows 7. I was hoping to get around that.

@thefabe: I have tried running XP compatibility mode, unfortunately after I downloaded XP and Virtual PC I wasn't able to run it because my computer didn't meet the qualifications. My monitor in device manager is recognized at "Generic PnP Monitor." & finally I went to the HP website, downloaded the "adjust pattern utility" and got colored lines, circles, shades of grey and grids! was that suppossed to happen?

thanks for getting back to me so quickly. Hopefully we can find a way around this.

Well It obviously wasn't the driver, but just an adjustment tool. My error in not reading more carefully. Stil shouldn't hurt to run the utility and adjust you LCD. And as far as your onbaord your probably going to need to get a addon card. How old is your system? I also don't see what CPU you have. You can type sys info in the search box then click on system information to find out. Fabe

Intel Celeron CPU 1.70 GHz, 1694 MHz, 1Core, 1 Logic Processor.

Do you think that installing a driver that was compatible with Vista would help?

Run the installer in compatibility mode for Vista SP1.

Ok I decided to get a graphics card. Do you think replacing it my old card with a GeForce 7300 GS will work?
