  1. Hi we have recently bought 3 Advent 4211-b laptops (identical to MSI wind) and they came with windows XP, on XP the display resolution was 1024 by 768, but we installed Vista on all 3 and now alot of programs won't run because the resolution for some reason is 1024 by 600, is there anyway of changing it to 768, I don't think there is but I thought id ask, if you need spec il post it. Cheers

    Sorry I should have explained better, I've tried changing the display settings the maximum is 1024 by 600 on vista where as on XP before we installed vista it was 1024 by 768, I'm an IT Technician pretty clued up on what im doin, just never seen this before.

    thanks Joe
