Windows Thin PC - VGA Driver or Screen Resolution (Must be 800x600)

I have to quick here but I had an 'old' computer hanging around my house.

Atom Processor

I installed Windows Thin PC on it, a more 'compact' version of Windows 7. All the drivers automatically installed but the VGA driver doesn't work.
Basicly when I [Right Click -> Screen Resolution] the box with the resolutions is grey and stuck to 800x600.

I know it can do 1024x768 'cause it did so on XP but I had battery/ACPI issues. So I moved to Windows Thin PC.

I have tried a number of regestry hacks but nothing works...


PS: Its an Asus Eee PC 900

Its a driver issue, get hold of the right driver and install in compatibility mode if required. No reg hacks should be required.
