Windows 7: How do I locate driver to reenable widescreen resolutions?

How do I locate driver to reenable widescreen resolutions?

After the March 2017 windows update, only 4/3 resolutions are available for my desktop.

I am running Windows 7 64 bit on an Acer Aspire with a 24" Dell 2407WFP monitor. Dell's website does not offer a Windows 7 driver for this monitor.

When I do a dxdiag test and click display, every field is empty except for screen resolution.

Is there a driver I can download to allow widescreen resolutions?
