Hi, I have a Dell Vostro A860 laptop which has intel GM965 motherboad, 1gb ram, 1.6ghz cpu and my os is Microsoft Windows XP Professional Version 2002 Service Pack 2. Currently it is showing 1024x768 resolution which is not recommended, it should be 1366x768. Is it any graphic's driver related issue or I'll have to download a graphics driver? If yes then from where should I download the driver? thanx a ton...

Has the Desktop/Monitor Properties > Settings > Screen resolution slider been adjusted?

The graphics driver may have become corrupt. One can uninstall the driver via Device (thanks for mod) Manager and reboot. The recommended driver is here: Taken from here.

I think he meant to say...uninstall via Device Manager :), not Task Manager.

 

Start/Run...type devmgmt.msc and hit Enter.  Double-click Dsiplay Adapters, double-click the detailed item now displayed under Display Adapters.  Select Drivers tab, click Uninstall button.

Why is it that my response ratio is close to nil? Any feed-back (negative welcome)....+
Not feeling sorry for myself, but I really do not want to become a thread killer.

Love to BC and all who enter therein.
