Thank you baby jesus

Finally found some drivers for my laptop... I was finally able to format the laptop and switch from Vista back to XP. Seems as though lots of people are wanting to and have found drivers to make shit work.

Anyone know why I cant get 1200x800 but get 1024x768? Its the only hangup on this format. I can live with it but would prefer the extra resolution...

What laptop are you using?
I bought a Toshiba to re-sale which was made after Vista was released and I had a HELL of a time trying to get the integrated video to work properly (x1200 too).
Pretty much I tried every set of ATi drivers, and had to resort to some Omega drivers
http://www.omegadrivers.net/
even than I had issues.

Pretty much to get video working correctly, I had to switch back to Vista even after fucking with tons of sets of drivers (make sure you are uninstalling them correctly, and using a driver cleaner).
