I performed a clean install for my dell dimension 3000 to windows 7 from windows xp. While downloading I did realize the gui was a little messed up but I paid it no attention, however when the install completed I realized it was something wrong with it. I've tried to update the driver and nothing changes. I can not change the resolution. My dell service tag is jrsyv61. When I try to upgrade from dell site it only has xp upgrades. Is there anything I can do to fix this resolution?

What is the actual video card make and model? Have you tried going to the video card manufacturers web site and download the drivers straight from them?

According to the information I gathered from advance setting on Windows my chip type is Intel® 865G Graphic Accelerated VGA BIOS. The adapter type is Standard VGA Graphic Adapter. DAC 8bit. I don't know if this information helps. Let me know if there is anything else I can provide. I'm learning that this is an older system and it don't seem like many upgrades can be done to improve performance...only if I knew then what I know now.

I apologize, it needs some sort of unzipping utility such as jzip which is a free utility for this type of file, I should have included it with the previous reply. Try downloading and installing jzip first, then the driver I linked, and see if that does the trick.

I've downloaded the zip file and extracted the other file with it however when I try to run any of the files i'm prompted to open the file with something else. I do not see any autorun files or any direct applications to run from. Am I missing a piece of the puzzle?

no, I am. hehe were not all perfect, and locating drivers for older hardware can be a pain sometimes. apparently intel has dropped support for that chipset at windows xp. The driver I linked there appears to be a custom made one and requires a little bit of work to get it to work. I found another work around though download the 82865G graphics controller driver from the video section here extract the files to C:\dell\drivers\R106458. You will get an error message at first. Then locate the file, go into it and locate the "setup" file. right click it, and select properties. Click on the compatibility tab and change the settings to XP sp3. It should in theory work, if not we can go from there.

Not a problem glad we got it figured out. Again I apologize for taking so long-sometimes it takes a bit to finding drivers and workarounds for systems like that. Its frustrating having an older computer that you really like and that works well for you, only to have some genius decide to drop support simply cuz its not the latest and greatest.

Trail and error. I appreciate you taking the time out to assist me. Your time was swift! Thank you again for you efforts. Its unfortunate that desktops are becoming obsolete because I would invest in another but I guess the way to go is labtop or tablet.

oh, desktops arnt obsolete in and of themselves-its computers in general. Typically, the minute you buy any computer off the shelf, be it a laptop or a desktop its already obsolete-and the older they are, the more obsolete they get. the same goes with laptops and tablets. It costs a fortune to keep up with them, if you got one that does what you need it to that works, then thats whats important. :D
