    help with sis graphics f&h laptop - no supported modes

    I have read lots of threads and have got as far as I can with and am hoping that I can get some help to overcome the last stage please...

    I have my laptop working with Windows7, so know I am having issues with sis graphics - chipset sis671.

    When I load the sis driver (64 bit) I get an error about being unable to detect any support modes for my screen. I read in another thread about using powerstrip in windows7 to help detect the modes of my laptop screen, but those instructions do not appear to work for me.

    I will reboot this PC and an copy and paste my log file into this thread in the hope that someone can offer me more advice.

    Thanks
