Unhappy Dell Inspiron Netbook 1011

I can only have a resolution of 800 x 600. Everything is blown up and I'm assuming its because I'm missing drivers. Here is a few screenshots of what I've come across. Please help me?

Yes I've gone to Dell to look for drivers I just dont know which one I need. I have verified I cannot go over 800 x 600, and I switched out harddrives just to see if it was the driver. The new harddrive worked fine, but I lost alot of data on the old one (the one I recently put back in) I need help. Please help me.

Ok I found the driver I think I need. When I tried installing it I got this http://img832.imageshack.us/img832/5760/errorqi.png

Here is the driver I downloaded

What OS are you running? Have you tried doing a Windows Update?

Sorry, I can't see the pictures your posting due to content filters. (I'm at work).

Try running Microsoft Update, especially the optional updates. Look for the video drivers in the list that comes up.

go to dell.com. Find the space where you type in your model # (I think its under support) drivers for everything should appear. Take those display and video drivers and install them. Come back and post your results. Hope this helps.
