Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1: Windows

Resolution issues since vista upgrade

I recently updated from xp to vista and can't get my resolution any better than 8bit at 640 X 480 pixels. The original graphics controller was: Intel(R) 82845G/GL/GE/PE/GV Graphics controller. This isn't compatible with Vista. Automatic updates, etc claim the driver is up to date and working properly despite the yellow hazard triangle hanging over the driver's title in the device manager listings and I'm unable to open windows movie maker where I get an error message stating the graphics card/driver is out of date or the like. Going through graphics properties I found the listing: Brookdale - G Graphics Chip Accelerated VGA BIOS.
Is it possible to get my graphics working properly by downloading the necessary driver or the like?
I've been trying the "driver detective" out and the driver the program keeps attempting to download freezes up continuously before completion. I also tried downloading all of the windows updates that were available (over half a gig), no problem downloading but didn't repair the resolution problems associated with the graphics driver.

Just force and install the driver, It should be working good. I too had similar problem. I just forced and installed the driver even though it said that its not compatible.

you do that.

I have a dell with windows vista. the monitor is 20 or 21 inches wide screen. I recently had a friend try to install windows xp but at the last attempt he tried to reformat my computer & install it xp...


You can adjust the screen resolution to increase the size of the image to fill the screen.
Go to the Control Panel - Display - Settings and adjust the screen resolution to 1280 X 1200 pixels. If this still doesn't fill the screen then increase it further say 1600 X 1200 pixels even higher if necessary.

Have you made sure your video driver is up to date? XP also has SP3 now too so you should download and install it.

Screen resolution for LG 194wt


Hi, Afraid the only operating system now is windows 10 on any PC unless your using a Mac system. Once you upgrade to windows 10, everything will automatically set everything correct for you & you will be surprised how it will speed up your system! this is the best Microsoft release operating system they have ever made. Please leave me feed back: Malcolm Campbell, Thanks.

Lost resolution windows vista upgrade on GX260


Hi all,

I tried numerous solutions for this issue and none of them worked except this one. I tested it with Vista Ultimate and don’t know if other Vista versions have the same drivers but here’s what worked for me:

1. Right click ‘Computer’ then left click ‘Properties’ to open up System window.
2. Click ‘Device Manager’
3. Click ‘+’ on ‘Display Adapters’ and you should see the drivers for your video. Right click and select ‘Update Driver Software...’
4. Select ‘Browse my computer for driver software’ and click ‘next’.
5. Click ‘Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer’
6. Untick ‘Show compatible hardware’
7. Select ‘Intel Corporation’ then select ‘Intel 82865G’. Click next.

This will install the drivers. No they are not the same drivers for the hardware but they work a treat!

Is there a driver for D-Link Ver.2.10 DSB-C310 webcam on Vista?


Hey xanthia2313,
According to the manufacturer this webcam is not compatible with Vista. You can try searching for a driver that would make it work using the update driver option.

Sincerely,

Upgrading windows xp to vista


You can upgrade from your current edition of Microsoft Windows XP or Windows 2000 to a corresponding or better edition of Windows Vista by purchasing and installing an upgrade copy of Windows Vista.
While selecting the edition of Windows Vista that's right for you, it's important to clearly understand what hardware your PC will need to ensure the features you want will run reliably.

Resolution change on my lap top screen when I load my webcam


I had this problem on my PC and I tried everything from updating drivers to re installing the software and updating my graphics card but nothing seemed to work.
And then as a last resort I right clicked on the icon on my desktop and chose properties and clicked on the Compatability tab and unchecked on display settings Run in 640x480 screen resolution.
This worked and did not affect the webcam in anyway.
