Default Display and gaming problem

Hi all,

This is my first post on this site, and its a headache

Have just reinstalled xp home after formating, and I cant get the display settings I had before this, have downloaded the manufaturers driver for my video/display card(sis 650) but can only get "highest 32 bit, 1024 x768 and 800x 600" (either too big or too small)!

My second problem is I just got Broken Sword sleeping dragon and PES 6. Now they both start off well by playing the intro videos but as soon as i go to start playing it either says driver has stopped working or it restarts

Have just run DXDIAG and on the "D3D8 Test Result" it said exactly the same thing "driver has stopped working"

Do I need a newer video/graphics/display card or should i download more drivers(of which ive tried a few) to find one that works??

Anyone got any ideas
