@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.
