Upgrade Problems with Graphics

\015 I downloaded many Windows Vista and other upgrades on my laptop the other day and after I did I cant set my resolution higher than 1024 by 768 pixels and when I open games it states that the hardware acceleration has a problem. The games are blurry. Also when I close my laptop screen, the computer doesn't shut off anymore. I tryed going back to a restore point but it didn't work. I need help getting rid of this problem, how do I take the upgrades off if needed or fix this problem? Thank you. \015\012HP Pavilion dv6648se Entertainment Notebook PC widesceen\015

Answers :

Download both the chipset utility and the video driver for your video card. Upgrading the OS to Vista doesn't automatically install all the required drivers, the chipset should be installed before the video driver

Vista driver Hi When I upgraded my laptop to Vista Ultimate, I realized that there was no Vista driver for the graphics card I have. So when I upgraded, Windows created its own driver to let me use the graphics card. I accidentally disabled the driver and I don't know how to get it back on. When I go to the place I disabled the driver from, I can't find anything. Does anybody know how to get the Microsoft Windows driver back? Thanks Deez Khara
