Default Display Drivers

Hello there. The resolution on the laptop I use is stuck at 800 by 600. It uses an ATI Mobility Radeon X1400. I was wondering if this was the fault of its drivers. I used a program called Driver View to view the display drivers, and there seem to be 8 of them installed, 1 of which is described as a display driver (ati2dvag.dll) and another as a video driver (vga.sys)... Is this harmful to the system?

Also, my moniter's display is hooked up to my TV and I would prefer to not do anything to compromise their synchronization...

The thing is, Hefe, this computer uses Windows Media Center and ATI Mobility Radion X1400, which is not listed as a GPU for WMC on ATI's website.

The xp drivers should work just fine.
