Deteriorating Graphics

I downloaded Windows 7 on my Dell Studio 1737 and now my graphics seem to be deteriorating over time. While they do refresh to original when highlighted, the issue continues. Anyone know if this is related to Windows 7 upgrade ?

Hi Peterjame,
microsoft reccomends that a clean install is the best way to install windows 7 especially if upgrading from xp. You may find that updating the driver helps and drivers for your system can be found here:

(see screenshot)
Don't worry if they are vista drivers as these should work with 7 as reccomended by Dell here:

Looking for Windows 7 Drivers? | Dell UK

If you still cannot find all of the Windows 7 drivers for your unit, most of the existing Windows Vista drivers should work. Return to Dell's Drivers and Downloads page, and download the Windows Vista drivers for your system. Be sure to check the Windows 7 Compatible Systems list to ensure that your computer is listed as Windows 7 compatible.If drivers are still missing from your computer, continue below.
