Windows 7: Can't set any resolution betwen 1600x900 and 1024x768 on my laptop

Windows 7 64 bit

Thanks..I did the install of latest Intel Graphics Driver...but the problem persists...can only see and select from three resolutions: 1600x900, 1024x768, and 800x600.
Any idea if I can get something above 1024x768, but below 1600x900 ?

Where did you get the update...?
I have an HP Probook 6470b and same problem..cannot select between 1600x900 and 1024x768..
I think I downloaded them from HP webpage, something here I think:

HP EliteBook 8470p Notebook PC*-* Download drivers and software - HP Business Support Center

I remember I downloaded them from Intel and from HP, i think the ones from HP were the ones which worked

Good luck!

Hi jrodola, I have the same issue with my laptop. How did you manage to change the resolution size to 1366 x 768? Thank you

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1

I am having the same problem on a Dell Optiplex 780 Desktop which Windows 7 is native to. But for me, no option above 1024x768 even shows up. 1024x768 is as high as it will Go. I tried going to the dell website and downloading the IntelHD drivers it listed after it ran a System Check but it made no difference. My monitor can go up to 1600x900. The Intel Driver update utility still won't bump it up any higher. All the advice offered in the thread didn't work for me, unfortunately. What else can I try?

1024X768 resolution leave a gap!
For reasons due to health and sight I like to use 1024x768 and not 1280x1024 on my 19"lcd monitor. If I set it to 1024x768 then there is a gap top and bottom of the screen that cannot be moved. In Windows XP I can set it to 1024x768 and there is no gap. I reckon it must be driver issues in...
