Dead screen and low resolution on external screen

Hi', My Acer Aspire 5103WLMi has a dead screen and when I connect it to an external screen it works fine except that I have no option to allow me to increase the resolution from the 640 x 48 which is unusable. What can I do please. It boots up ok in Win 7 but I don't know what might be causing the low resolution. John

looks like you need to load a driver for the external monitor.

Thanks, I tried loading a Vista VGA driver but Win 7 doesn't seem to like it and won't boot up now. I couldn't find a Win 7 driver. I might try one more installation of Win 7 before I take it to the dump.
