Need a Display Adapter Driver

We have recently upgraded computers to Windows 7 Pro. On two of the systems I am only able to get a screen resolution of 640x480. Needless to say, many of our applications will not run with this setup. I am attaching screen shots of the System information so you can see what the systems have. Please advise as to which driver I need in order to get better screen resolution on these systems. Thank you!

Can you give us the brand and model of the PC? This will make it easier to find the driver.

Yo can also use the following program to get the display manufacturer http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/pc-wizard.html.

You can also use SIV and then click on PCI Bus and that should give you the make/model of the video card: http://rh-software.com/

It is an Intel 82845G chipset.....

Gateway doesn't appear to have E4000 readily listed... They have an E-4100??

See if this helps....

I think it is also referred to as a Gateway Midway computer.

is there a model name on it?
If your LAN is running, you can also use windows update, or drivereasy (free) :  www.drivereasy.com
let it scan - then hit Get Drivers; it will list the drivers - you can google them, or let drivereasy do it

OK, I tried drivereasy and it did find one driver that it downloaded and installed but that did not solve my video problem. I am attaching a screen shot that I hope will help. Driver Easy

I think that you need to add a separate graphic card in it that is compatible with windows 7.

Problem solved - I downloaded the original XP driver and when I tried to install it I first got a message that the OS was not supported. Then I had the opportunity to "Install Using Recommended Settings." Once I did that the video problem was resolved.

I found the solution on my own based on a solution from an expert a couple of months ago.
