Dell Inspiron 1150 Display Issue

I've been requested at work (Maybe not always a good idea to let someone see the "cool new" Windows 7 running on your desktop) to install Windows 7 RC on a Dell Inspiron 1150. The install was pretty clean without much trouble except i'm stuck with the Display being set to the Generic PnP with a terrbile 640 X 480 setting. I've updated the VGA adapter to the correct Intet graphic Controller. Still researching for info on the fix for this. But wondering if anyone else has already delt with this issue.


Thanks

Well it seems that Windows 7 doesnt like the Intel Drivers for the Video Card. A restarts it defaults back to the Standard VGA Adapter.
