Yesterday I upgraded from XP sp1 to XP sp 2.
Everything works OK, except my display resolution has got worse!
(Letters on web pages are fuzzy or washed out. Same on Powerpoint)
I installed the newest driver for the Intel adapter, but still the
resolution remains poor.

Q: How do I restore the sharp display resolution I had when running XP
sp 1?

Running on a TOSHIBA Tecra 1A notebook. (i486)

Many, many thanks.
Milton.

Driver version (from control panel/Display) is:
Microsoft, 6/6/2001, Version: 5.1.2001.0
(Seems old!! Do I need a newer driver??)
Toshiba Internal 1024/768 panel.

The Toshiba hardware must be made up with intel graphics chip set
i take it.1st,go to intel,downloads,chipset software,download and install the
chipset installation utility,this was updates within last month,then locate
the
drivers for youre graphic chipset,download and install.I believe that
thiers a
application accelerator for notebooks also,download and install.
