Default VGA driver question.. Vista and v2dp MB

I have a Jetway MB with VIA chipset (v2dp) on my home network which I recently installed Vista x86 on for ease of networking.

The problem is I can't find a Display driver that works other than the basic VGA adapter driver that came with the vista install, and offers no refresh rate change so my refreshrate is so bad it hurts the eyes. I just want to be able to use it with out going blind.. spead and performance is not an issue as this particular PC is for web surfing etc..

any idea's?

Its a Via chipset (vga) not Nvidia/Gforce.

I would like to run all my PC's on Vista, XP is such a pain for Networking.

Thanks! but I tried there already, just tried all of them for the heck of it.. no go.. The chipset was not designed for Vista and don't think I'm going to get it running smoothly unless I throw a pci card in. but thanks for the help.
