    Can you explain more about what's wrong with the display. When you say "small" do you mean the resolution is low (everything appears big with little room) or everything appears tiny with lots of room on the Desktop? If it's the latter, then you did install the video driver and need to adjust the resolution in Display Settings (Start -> Control Panel -> Display -> Settings)

    Or if you mean smaller than the actual display monitor limits, then the monitor controls need to be adjusted OR lower the refresh rate of the screen using the video driver facilities provided.
