Is the video-out port on your motherboard, or is it a PCI or PCIe card?

How do I find that out? Sorry I never got into the technical/hardware aspects of computers.

STOP. it is a video driver problem. since you do not have the driver installed win 7 installs a generic VGA driver. it supports up to 800x600. We need you to type device manager in search. go to the diplay tab>right click>properites>use the pull down till you see hardware ids. copy them and post them we will find you a driver

Let me ask you, where did you buy your computer? What computer is it? If I know exactly what machine you have, maybe I can find all the specs of it online.

I posted all my specs in my profile puter specs area. I had it custom built in 2003 at a local computer store. It's an Intel Pentuim 4 / Celeron, 478-pin processor w/400/533 MHz FSB, Shuttle. What else do you need to know that you can't find in my specs?

I need to find your video card. If you did not buy a video card separately, it is probably onboard. I will google for your motherboard and see what I can find.
