    you need to reinstall the Video Card Drivers, because the Standard PCI Graphics adapter is the default tha windows uses, so it doesn't know wht you video card is capable of doing, so it uses the "old only compatible mode"

    The list of Compaq Presario 1200 series notebooks is listed here, but I don't see a XL-103 among the list.

    Do you know what brand and model display adapter is in your notebook? You need to download and install the graphic drivers for it, or else it's going to remain stuck in the Windows VGA mode. :(
