I reinstalled Windows XP on the same laptop after trying to find any

However, when i downgraded to previous version, i got back my 1024x768
without any issues.
I guess the latest intel drivers had a bug, which prevent from displaying
1024x768 ... hope Intel corrects that , and re-releases new version..
Until, then no vista for me... buy
