ok you need to download the correct graphics drivers the standard one installed by windows 7 isn't the right one it's just to get it working.

which can be found here

HP 510 Notebook PC*-* Download drivers and software - HP Business Support Center

now those are for xp so they may or may not work alternativly you could try intel for the intel 915gm express chipset video driver.

if you go through device manager you could try and ask windows to search for an update to your driver software.

if that doesn't work post and i'll try to help during the day.
