crunksmiley. Download this graphics driver to your desktop then run the compatibility tutorial to make it compatible to your install. then run the download as administator. Good luck to you.

That is the only driver at HP. There isn't even a Vista driver.

Video driver is the the top one in the list.


The only other option maybe is here: Intel® Driver Update Utility

Click "Check your system for latest updates" maybe and only a maybe a direct Intel driver may work. 20% chance?

Your right Hoppie but an xp driver would clean up his resolution problem if he could get it to install. With that old of a pc he is kinda stuck with whatever he can make work.
