I recently Re-formated an XP computer i have, It was installed as Windows XP Professional SP3. After the install I am unable to get any higher resolution then 640 x 480 and 4 bit color.I cannot update any drivers until i know what graphics chipset i have. I have gone into the device manager and there is no tab for display adapters, Also the Direct x diagnosis tool has no availible information for the display device. I would like to make this computer more useable and with 4bit color this is very hard. Any other info i can get will be given upon request.

Did you install the chipset driver? If not, please do so.
