Windows 7: Not sure if right driver & can't set resolution

24 May 2012   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

My mother complained about other issues with her PC now that I had installed Win7x64. Like random BSOD and other stuff.

Anyway I came home yesterday and decided to finally solve this sh*t. So I borrowed a floppy drive and did a bios update. I must say -and I don't mean to offend anyone- that it took like 10'' longer than I thought it would and my balls jumped back inside my body, but it worked.

Now: the monitor is recognized with its name; the optimum resolution is recommended and available to be chosen; new audio drivers were installed; it can sleep or hibernate; I could install the update from Windows I couldn't before.

Guess it was just the bios update all it needed.

Thanks a lot!
