just installed windows 7. help

everyone says windows 7 is good but i don't know if its the right choice now.
I hope i don't have to downgrade to vista again :[

i have a dell latitude D810..
It was xp, but i upgraded to vista with NO problems.
i just bought windows 7, and now the screen is really blurry. =/
and kinda wider then normal
i don't think my computer manufacturer supports windows 7 yet.
but cant i download an xp diver for graphics?

its really bothering me cause i cant read anything

did i really just waste money?

Hello Angelina,

No, you cannot use XP drivers on 7. However, you can use Vista drivers.

Could you please fill in your system specs? http://www.sevenforums.com/general-d...tml#post256049 I recommend Speccy for making things easier.

Thanks,
~Jonathan

You will want to run "clear type text tuner" too.

You keep using the word upgrade, if you had an upgrade DVD and you actually upgraded, rather than a clean install, I suggest you do it over, before you add a lot of programs etc. If you upgraded you have all the problems of your Vista and your XP rolled into one. A clean/custom install is like a new car and not just a paint job. If I am wrong and you did an actual clean install, no harm, I am just trying to help. A clean may even solve some problems.

Have you tried running Windows Update to see if it finds any updated drivers?
