win 7 home premium

i have found the resolution setting but it makes no difference - i have tried them all! I also think its weird that the device is not picked up as a Samsung monitor as it is on my other Win 7 pc? I have tried to add it as a device but it remains a generic PnP monitor?
Am getting more and more mad with this All in One - i cant install Adobe CS3 either - nor my drivers for my HP office jet.....
