    How do I change the monitor resolution? It won't go above the minimum. Seems the driver is wrong! I just got a used computer and my monitor won't set-up correctly. Where do I get a compatible driver, or what do I do?

    You first identify the video board in the machine. Since you don't have the driver, you may have to remove the board and physically inspect it for the make/model. Then, you find the manufacturer's web site and download a current driver.

    What is the board identified as in the Device Manager, that's a good place to start. You could also download AIDA32 and see what it has to say, it's pretty good about identifying hardware.
