    have you tried updating the drivers for your graphics card or
    even changing the display adapter all together

    Hi ewireless, welcome to TSG.

    With the standard vga, that's all you're going to get.....you need to figure out what video card you have and locate the correct drivers for it......do you have the cd that came with either your computer or motherboard?
