I have 6 Gateway Profile 5.5 systems that we are upgrading to Windows 7. They were all donated to our school by one of the local banks and they are identical systems. One of them had been used here last year with Windows XP Pro SP3. The others had been wiped at the bank and not used here until now. I installed Windows XP Pro SP2 on each of them so that I could use our upgrade disk and install Windows 7 Pro. Now I can not get the display to be the same on all of the computers. On the system that we had previously used that has been upgraded to Windows 7 Pro the display adapter is "Intel 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family." I have no problem getting the display settings to 1024x768. The others are listed as "Generic PnP monitor on Standard VGA graphics adapter" and I can not change the display settings. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Adapter with no success. Since these are identical machines should I be able to get them all to the same settings? Please advise.

Thank you!
