    Since XP can find the device, perhaps third party drivers are your best bet. When compatible, NVIDIA is my choice.

    Find out what kind of video card you have, go on the web and get the drivers... The same goes for all the other missing hardware drivers in there too.

    There is no 'newer' version of XP out... XP is XP plus updates, unless it is a custom image.

    And it may help to use a legit copy of Windows ;)

    If you go back to the old disk you'll have the same problem. Don't waste your time.

    open up your case, figure out what card it is, go to the manufacturer's website. get the drivers. install. and now you can set your resolution.

    the OP has already admitted to piracy, so at this point no more help should be offered.

    The OP is not asking anything about "piracy, serials, copying of copyright material (movies, music, etc), hacking, cracking, phreaking, etc etc etc". Simiply that he doesn't know what he is doing as far as drivers. I see no problem with this thread and think you are taking the piracy thing a little overboard. The fact that it is a pirated version of windows is irrelavent to the OP's question, legit versions of windows don't come with the drivers he needs help with.

    I guess I missed something -- is an open academic version considered piracy?

    still not sure what your deal is. i guess you just love to get banned for acting like an ass in a web forum. good for you. at least it gives you something to strive for.
