On second thought, could you please post a screenshot of your Device Manager? Make sure the display adapters menu is open.

Now, can you right-click on the Standard VGA Graphics Adapter and click Update?

I've already done all that. There are no updates available - it runs it's checking process & says you currently have the latest driver or something like that.

Here's the scoop. Your motherboard is quite old. I suspect it is so old, there are few Windows 7 drivers for it. You are stuck with the generic drivers because there aren't any compatible ones.

Before we give up on it, try this link: http://www.sis.com/download/download...&Image791.y=11

No guarantees it will work, but it is worth a shot. The link is chipset drivers for a motherboard slightly newer than your. It may or may not work.

Ok I will give it a shot. Where do I extract the files to after downloading it?

I am not sure. I do not know what is in the package. Try the desktop, and if it does not work, try extracting them in C:\Windows\System32\drivers.

When clicking on the setup file it says "Cannot find a suitable package to install"

Yeah, sorry, I bet you your hardware is too old to run Windows 7 nicely.
Just for the heck of it, you can try this link.
