Question about Computers & Internet
I am assuming you are using the internal vga adapter installed on the motherboard, and not an expansion card in the AGP slot. If you are using an AGP card, the motherboard VGA driver will do no good; you must load the driver for the add-in card.
There are a few things to check. First in the CMOS Setup, on the "PCI/Plug & Play Setup" tab, ensure that the Primary Graphics Adapter is set to PCI. That selects the onboard video adapter.
Then, reboot the system into SAFE MODE. Use the F8 key, to get to safe mode during the boot process.
You need to go to the Device Manager window. To do this, click START, right click on COMPUTER, click on PROPERTIES, then select DEVICE MANAGER. Expand the DISPLAY ADAPTER listing. On the listed adapter, right click and select PROPERTIES, Select the DRIVER tab. Look to see if there is a ROLLBACK DRIVER option. If so select this and let the system go back to the previous driver.
This is an old motherboard, made before WIN XP. Motherboard manufacturers will normally only supply new drivers for two iterations of windows. So there is not any chance of getting a driver from the manufacturer for anything much later than VISTA. However, WIN 7 has default drivers that will operate most legacy VGA adapters. The rollback you did (if you did) probably took you back to the driver that WIN 7 placed there when it was installed. ou may have to live with it.

Select windows vista and VGA from the options
Most Windows Vista drivers will work with Windows 7 but apparently they haven't released any Windows 7 specific vga drivers.
