Red face Driver for VGA adapter.

Mandy detects my VGA as Trident Blade Generic, it works well. It allows setting of 24bits color.

My VGA is built-in onboard, chipset is VIA MK20, Taiwan maker. The CDROM only has driver for Windows, not for linux.
I can see the screen color is sharper in windows than linux,

So, what can i do to improve my VGA in linux ?
