    Hi,
    I've just installed parallels workstation on my FC6 laptop. Parallels works great as far as the installation goes. Now that i have XP installed, everything seems to work fine except my resolution. I have an Nvidia geforce 7300 video card yet the resolution for xp is only 4 bit color and 800 x 600 resolution, and i can't seem to change it. that's the only setting under display properties, it won't seem to detect the video card installed so it just runs VGA supported card at the lowest resolution. Can anyone tel me how i go about fixing this??

    Thanks in advance.

    yes it has, i've tried configuring the resolution by adding several resolutions into the display option...but regardless of what i add it won't change.
