I have updated memory and re-formatted a Dell B110 desktop to Windows 7.  I am only getting 800 x 600 resolution video.  I am using the onboard graphics.  I tried to update the driver and it said I had the best driver.  I need to at least 1024 x 768

Any suggestions?  Thanks

Did you run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor ahead of time?

--- If so what did it report about the graphics driver?

--- Your graphics driver is being reported as the best driver as an XP driver

--- Now that you have Windows 7, you need the Windows 7 driver

 

Go to Dell's website and see if there is a Windows 7 graphics driver for your computer

--- If not you will need to find a Windows 7 graphics card for your system
