On my wife's computer account all the icons are huge. It says above that the graphics card is Mobile intel... but when I look in the computer it says vga save. I need help getting this issue corrected. Thanks in advance

According to the information that you submitted, I'm guessing you have a Dell Studio 1535 laptop.

When a hard drive is replaced and Windows is reinstalled in it, some or all of the device drivers need to be installed afterwards.

Because the graphics driver for the Mobile Intel 965 Express Chipset device obviously hasn't been installed, that device is currently running in limited VGA mode.

Go here to download and save the R181156.exe file.

After it's been downloaded and saved, close all open windows first, then double-click it to start the install process.

Restart the computer, if prompted to, so the install process can finish.
