I recently restored windows xp and it defaulted everything, 800x600 screen, sound card, and maybe the graphics card? To make the sound work again i just had to go into settings and select the other card in a drop down menu, but how do i do it for a graphics card?

Hi courtiet,

What graphics card are you using now?
What card were you using?

Did you take out the newer card and hook up to whatever you were using?
After you reformated?

If it's an onboard graphics card you want to use now, that was the original with the setup.
Look in C drive for the setup program.
It is in one of those numbered files or an actual intel folder.

Whatever you are wanting to use now.
Find the setup for it by using search if you need to.

For instance, search for intel.


Also the settings are -
right click your desktop
click properties
choose the settings tab
you can change the resolution there
as well as advanced settings
