HP Pavillion a1000n Desktop PC video problems

I just installed win xp pro 32bit on a pavillion a1000n desktop pc, and now the display isn't working correctly. The color resolution won't go higher than 4bit? and I can't adjust display more than 620 x 480. For some reason the video driver isn't working.

Is it an internal graphics chip or a card?
I have a card labelled nothing but 'Elephant'. I plugged it in with XP and it had exactly the same visual issue as you seem to be having.
