I enthusiastically used Driver Sweeper and R-Wipe off the magazine DVD last night and now my 14inch laptop screen only shows about 10 inches. Went to the Restore Point but no luck.

Help!! :badpc:

Reinstall the drivers, or change the resolution.

Winston, I dont think you'd need System Restore. Try changing the screen resolution first and if that doesn't work, get new drivers OR see if R-Wipe or something have a way to undo the changes that they made first.

Hmmmm... a lesson here for anybody else who rushes in full of confidence. I'm sure it was Drive Sweeper which did the job but I omitted to backup before sweeping. :angry

It now seems that ATI do not publish drivers for the Radeon IGP 320M which is integrated into the motherboard. Which leaves me scrabbling through a pile of computer stuff at home in the vain hope I might find the original installation CDs.

Any other suggestions?

One day I intend to ride my bike around the South Island.

One plan was to call into PCteks shop and (presuming she has no idea what I look like) make a giant arse out of myself (probally by pretending to be WMG) and then post about it on PF1....

Anyway, I'll be up for a beer, Thougha warning, If you think I'm a smart arse now, It gets rapidly worse with beer....:D

Always room for you down here Mets. I've got a nice double garage...... Park the HD beside my dust-covered BMW.

PCTEK's shop looks the biz and customers are starting to trickle in, and it is in a good site.
