I recently wiped my brothers computer clean and started again (out of control viruses) and am having trouble setting it to a resolution higher than 640x480.
i have done this before on the same computer and i had this problem then, but i solved it by using a driver update program that automatically detects out of date drivers on the system.
this program found a load of updates i could apply, i did, and i was able to set it to higher resolutions. this time however, i installed all of the updated drivers the program found but i still can't raise the resolution of the screen. so i wanted to download the correct driver myself, but i don't know the name of the piece of hardware that i need to update the driver for. i have everest so i can find out the manufacturer etc without problems, but i was hoping someone could tell me what the part of the computer that determines maximum resolution is called?
which piece of hardware in a computer determines the maximum screen resolution (setting in windows display - properties - appearance - advanced (or something like that))
Thanks in advance
