    I use Windows XP Professional and an Intel® 82810 graphics controller.The driver is current. After installing the XP Service pack, I can no longer adjust my display resolution. I'm stuck with 600x800. Yuck. I'm reluctant to roll back the driver -it may not be compatible with XP(?). I'm out of ideas and hoping for some wisdom.

    Thanks, that's good, I had found that too :0) but I had XP for almost a year and all was well, it was after the Service Pack that my woes began...
