This problem... make me cry every morning... 6 months ago my laptop won't boot because of some crazy virus, So I decided to reinstall windows. after installation is done and then boot the laptop, the resolution is so crazy make my eyes hurts (1024 x 768 pixel). I check the device manager and it says the display adapter is the mighty STANDARD VGA GRAPHICS ADAPTER, so then I decided to broke into my mom cupboard and find a disk that contains drivers that I got when I bought the laptop 2 years ago. so I install the ATI MOBILITY RADEON HD 5430 DRIVER from that disk. but when the installation complete (although the catalyst say that warning occured during the installation) nothing changes (except my madness of course) even I restart the laptop. the display adapter is still that STANDARD VGA GRAPHICS ADAPTER, not the ATI MOBILITY RADEON which I install earlier. I even update the STANDARD VGA GRAPHICS ADAPTER manually but windows say that it is up to date. some guys say that I need to upgrade my netFRAMEWORK to 4 and install the driver once again, but nothing changes. I even clean install the windows and install the driver once again but you guess it, NOTHING CHANGES (except I get more madness and madness over time) there is nothing I can except more crying in the morning.

In case you guys wondering here is my laptop information...
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
Manufacturer: COMPAQ
Model: CQ42
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i3 CPU M380 @2.53Ghz 2.53GHz
Installed Memory (RAM): 2.00 GB (1.86 GB Usable)
Pen and Touch: No pen or touch input is avaible for this display sire!

Any help will very greatly appreciated...!!!

P.S: sorry for my bad english, I am just some dumb 14 years old kid from Indonesia.
