I have the same machine, and I have been unable to find any video drivers for it. Apparently Dell does not provide drivers for Windows 7 or Vista.

This is where they would be if they existed: Drivers & Downloads

I guess the XP ones don't work.

Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit / XP Home sp3
 
 

Welcome to Seven Forums. As Jonhathon as stated Intel only provides for XP and will only provide for XP. Here is some clarification on just that. Graphics — Older Intel® graphics controllers and Microsoft Windows 7* operating system On just a side note this is why it is always a good idea to run Windows Upgrade Advisor before installing Windows Seven Operating System on older systems. Sorry. Fabe

Have you checked out the manufacturer website for drivers? Here is a resource for updating hardware drivers that are not working properly: Driver Needed,Please Help.

For further information on screen resolution, visit: Change your screen resolution.

Hope this helps!
