Question about HP Compaq Presario F750US

Vista Stetched Screen

So my laptop (Presario F700) told me to update my nvidia drive so I did. This made my internet not work for some reason. I uninstalled and then reinstalled nvidia and now my internet works fine. But resolutions were deleted. I have a widescreen monitor and the previous resolution was 1680x1050 (I think) and now the max it lets me go to is 1024x768. This causes everything to be stretched out. The words are squished and things that were once square are now rectangles. I've tried restarting my computer and such but nothing works. Any help?

Not sure if this will help but i just had a similar problem for having a stretched screen and fixed it by right-clicking on the desktop screen, selected NVIDIA Control Panel, and then selected the option to restore defaults. It fixed mine but if you did install the wrong one then your resolution may not be able to be fixed I guess...not sure why it would delete your resolution options though??

It appears that the wrong Nvidia driver has been installed because you cannot change the screen resolution above 1024x768.
o to the Compaq/HP WEB site - support/download page to download the latest Nvidia driver for your version of Windows and model laptop.

Windows XP is pretty old now and not supported by Microsoft with updates. You may want to consider purchasing Windows 10 to install on your computer and/or purchasing an entirely different laptop.Software Empire The 1 Source For Affordable Software Downloads

You may be able to use the Windows Vista drivers, as it does not appear that HP offers drivers for Windows XP.

When downloading drivers, its best to only download them from manufacturer websites. For example, you may be able to download drivers separately from each device manufacturer:

Well you can re seat the card meaning the network card. You can also try the manufacturers website and download the drivers.

Or see what worked for others.

You could try www.nvidia.com and look for drivers for your
particular Chipset.
