Did you check optional Windows Updates for newer drivers after install?

Try Windows 7 or Vista drivers available for the tag number. If Vista will not work then try running the executable in Vista compatiblity mode on Properties tab.

Sometimes you have to go with the MS VGA driver, but you should get better screen resolution by right clicking desktop, although it most likely won't sleep until you get the Vista/Win7 driver in.

As a last resort, try installing XP driver in SP2 compat mode.
