    Thanks Gary but I tried this before I used the forum and none of the settings adjusts the screen to how it was with W7

    Here's a screenshot of my mapping software and you can see the effect, in that the grid squares are now grid oblongs... I've indicated the grid intersections with flags...
    Cheers Joe

    Did you try cpu-z? It's a very small program that will sniff your mother board and grab all the informations. You'll know then the Graphics Card Model. It will be helpful.
    Take care,

    Dear Joe,

    Go there and select Option 2: http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

    You must find out if the graphic Revision A1 is the last. There are other informations under the Mainboard Page regarding the BIOS. You must find out if the BIOS version is the last one. Show us the mainboard page.

    Take care,

    I've seen B2 instead of A1. To be confirmed with the Mainboard Page Screenshot.

    Hia Mike.. I'm so sorry but I don't understand the jargon you're using, I'm sorry but I'm not so technically informed, so I don't understand B2, A1 and BIOS ....... again I'm not aware that I've had a graphics revision never mind if it's the first or last..........??
    Also in your previous post you told me to click on the link for nvidia which I did and selected the second option as you said, it then asked me to download Java. I again did that, having downloaded Java it seems not to recognise it and asks me to install again.
    Now I really appreciate your, and others, help in this but I feel as though I'm in a never ending tunnel of confusion and I'm a whisk away from returning back to W7...
    Cheers Joe

    You have an old laptop, It won't hurt to update the BIOS under 7 or 10. It's up to you. It was a pleasure helping you across Atlantic Ocean.

    BIOS (basic input/output system) is the program a personal computer's microprocessor uses to get the computer system started after you turn it on. It also manages data flow between the computer's operating system and attached devices such as the hard disk, video adapter, keyboard, mouse and printer. ...We update the BIOS firmware so that new features can be added or bugs can be fixed.

    BIOS - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Revision A1 tells me that your BIOS was never update. Mine is at Revision 9 (Graphic) and the last update was in October 2012: Version 7..15. When I purchase the computer in January 2011 it was at Version 7.12 with a lower Revision number for the Graphic card. When I update from Version 7.13 to 7.15, visual rendering was not only better but HD quality was at best = Revision 9.

    Now you try to run Win Ten with a BIOS Version made for the first Version of Windows 7. Think about it?

    Unless you go to a computer specialist, It's you and only you that can update the BIOS upon the advices of the motherboard manufacturer on their web site. There ain't no automatic update for that like in Windows Update.

    By updating, the actual Version of the BIOS (shown in the mainboard page of CPU-Z with the date) it will switch to the last while Revision A1 for the Graphic will also switch for the better to the last.
