Windows 7: Resolution issues

Win 7 Ultimate 32bit〈=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=12454&prodSeriesId=70989&taskId=135

This is probably it. And there are no drivers for that system from HP, and if there are non ein Windows Updates, then you are stuck with whatever drivers there are available in Win 7.

And the only ones who can fix that is HP. this is not a Windows 7 problem.

I am assuming it is Win7 32bit,,, so you can try this,.,., HP Software Update Utility

However,,, and this is a BIG HUGE If,,,,,,, you might be able to get away with the XP drivers. But I doubt it. and if you already tried that then, you know the answer.

Win 7 Ultimate 32bit

Well after a bit more looking,, there is one last thing you can try if you haven't already,,..

Intel Extreme Graphics Drivers (Woops,, my bad,, sorry about that,, I didn't read completely. They don't provide drivers for Win7 on that video.)

Yes I did see all the info ins System Specs,, but the Model number you gave made it easier to find on HP's site.

But as you said it worked before,, then something is missing,,,

What really sucks is that, i had saved the driver install file, in just the occasion that i would need it (like this) but recently i found out i was gonna get enough money to purchase a brand new computer, worthy of the honorific of 'rig'

so i deleted it for some space on the harddrive, because i didnt think i would need it.


EDIT: HAH!!!! i win! =]

Downloaded drivers for xp version of my card and using the nvidia control panel it allowed me to change my resolution without failing

>.> but its at 1360-768... its missing six pixels..

ah well. i dont care, im happy.

On a side note, is there any way i can change the taskbar color without aero? the light blue is getting old =\
