Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition
Stardard VGA Graphics Adapter is what the driver Vista installs when it doesn't have the right driver for your video card. That isn't your video card type. You need to check out the documents for your specific computer and find out what kind of card it really has and download the driver for that card. You will then be able to choose a higher resolution. Sometimes when you boot up your computer and the screen first comes on it will tell you what type of video card you have but this only works on some models.

Testimonial: "thank you for the info."
I don't know what you have already tried, so here's a list: You may be able to go to Microsoft update and choose optional software that includes device drivers. It will tell you what is available on the left menu. Or, go to Control panel, display, settings, and click the advanced button. Click on ADAPTER and then drivers tab. Search for a new driver. Allow choose automatically from the internet. If the adapter isn't on the tab or it says it can't find a better driver, you will need to find out what kind of card you really have. It's not "standard," that's the problem. Your graphics card can be identified by going to Start, Accessories, System Tools, System Information. Click the + next to components. Go to display.Look to the right and you will see what kind of of adapters you actually have.
If you can't find the driver by MS update, you can go to the company of the website that makes the driver. I don't recommend a general search. "Free driver" sites are not always safe. Lastly, sometimes you can use add new hardware in the control panel, or start your computer with the monitor unplugged. Then turn the computer off, and restart with the monitor plugged in. The device manager will sometimes load it correctly. If you want to know how to uninstall it from device manager, ask that question. It has it risks and can't be fully described in space here.
