    Microsoft basic display adapter, 1366x768?


    I have installed windows 8.1 on my Dell dimension 9150. I have all of the drivers apart from my graphics card driver because it isn't supported in Windows 8.1.

    Is is there any way I can set the resolution to 1366x768 without a driver?

    Short of getting a video card that's supported by Win 8.1, no.

    What resolution is it now using? Have you looked in screen resolution for a "Show all modes"?

    Yes. All it supports is 1024x768 and 1280x1024.
