RM laptop stuck on 640x480

  axus 03:22 11 Apr 2006

Help appreciated
I have a laptop badged RM with a P4 1.8 ghz with 256 ram. I can only get 640x480 resolution. Tried all the usual but it can not find or list any drivers. Someone has suggested the graphics chip might be faulty but I don't know enough to check, can manage to add memory but that is about it.
Put in a replacement hard drive, formatted then XP Pro installed
If it is the chip, can it be repaired or replaced ?

" Setup failed to install (0x80040707)"
