Windows 7: My resolution is incorrect

My resolution is incorrect

Hi, I just upgraded to Windows 7 and when I had Vista my resolution was 1280 by 800 and now it only lets me go up to 1024 by 768. I think i might have the wrong graphics card installed.
Specs: Toshiba Laptop Satellite A215-S5837
Processor: AMD Turion 64 X2 Mobile Technology 2.00 GHz
RAM: 2.00 GB
System Type: 32-bit Operating System
Graphics Card: VGA Graphics Adapter (This was not the same one as when I has Vista because I remember Its said something like ATI Radeon with numbers after it.
I tried going to go to the Toshiba website and get the drivers but it didn't work.
Sorry if this was posted in the wrong place and sorry for not being a computer wiz and thanks in advance!

Honestly, don't bother posting garbage like this. If you can take the time to post this, give a link to the driver the OP needs.

Well I was in the middle of editing it but you saw a chance to flame me. So flame on . Not to mention on the Toshiba site it says he has an intle display adapter, So I was searching for the reason why it showed this when he claimed he had an ATI. I obviously didn't get it done fast enough for you to take a poke at me.

It only shows that when you have the correct driver installed.
