    Gave it a go but nothing changed.

    Before I put your last fix in it was saying the maximum was 1024x768.

    I'm on 32 bit.
    I've downloaded the drivers and extracted them

    Re: Graphics drivers not found

    After extracting you have to copy the 2 files to their destinate location,
    as described.If downloaded to /home/hannah/Downloads:

    Code:
    sudo cp ~/Downloads/32-bit/*.so /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers
    Code:
    sudo cp ~/Downloads/32-bit/*.la /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers
    Then edit xorg.conf again:

    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    delete all,paste in:

    Code:
    Section "Device"
    	Identifier	"Configured Video Device"
    	Driver		"sis671"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Monitor"
    	Identifier	"Configured Monitor"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
    	Identifier	"Default Screen"
    	Monitor		"Configured Monitor"
    	Device		"Configured Video Device"
    	DefaultDepth 	24
    EndSection
    reboot
