- Service Pack for Intel 965GM Vista Graphic Drivers (Version 1244 WHQL/Softpaq num: SP35643)
- Service Pack for HPQFlash (Version F.17/Softpaq num: SP41747)
The interesting thing was that after the installation of the second service pack (HPQFlash) it worked again for some days and then the same problem again. Maybe one more thing: The first 6 months the screen resolution worked fine and then it suddenly changed (probably after a windows update).
Has anybody managed to get a fix to this problem?

Have you ever connected and operated an external VGA monitor with a 4:3 aspect ratio on the VGA port?
I don't use Vista so I'm not sure if the procedures are the same, but look at your Display Settings and see what monitor is identified.
Control Panel > Display > Settings > Display > Advanced > Monitor > Monitor Type
Your system seems to believe that there's a monitor attached that has a 4:3 aspect ratio rather than the correct 16:10. Find out why.

lol Little late on solving this issue but the answer to this question is:
Function Button (FN) + F4
HP provides a button to switch your screen to ON - OFF - ON w/Secondary monitor. Seems when it is set for dual mode the resolution drops to 1024 by 768.
DDBrunnenmeyer was correct in his assumption.
