Do you still have problems? I got the impression it was fixed
You have a MSI Wind "look alike" and the Wind is similar to eeepc
Seems the eeepc has a problem with screen size and the solution is anything but simple (and eeepc specific)
There is only one Intel driver for later Intel graphics
Check that your /etc/X11/xorg.conf contains the line
Driver "intel"
in
Section "Device"

Thank you for continuing to help me with this. i really appreciate your support.

Can you help me find exactly how I should navigate to the appropriate section to look for my Intel driver?

/etc/X11/xorg.conf is a text file - I hope that solves the riddle
In it's Section "Device" there may or may not be a line
Driver "intel"
Mostly it does not matter but can make a difference in some cases

Thanks for your help on this.

I have found the section of xorg.conf which is called 'Device'. There is no line contained within this section called 'Driver'. Where and how should I add such a line, in order to experiment with whether it would improve my display?

Driver "intel"
as the first line, but I don't know if the order really matters
