Screen Resolution - Drivers Kali?

Hello all,
First of all i will apologize for some of the grammatical errors.
I am new to this community.

I have a Asus x75a laptop, running windows 10, and i have been running a live version of Kali.
I like it, so i decided to do a graphical install from my usb.
Beside of the install, i installed Grub2Win to be able to boot into Kali.

When i boot into the installed version of Kali, it doesn't show th correct screen resolution, and i cannot change it. In the live version, everything is perfect.

So i did some Google'ing and found this is i common problem, and tried some different Xorg commands, from the terminal without any luck.

So i went to look at my drivers, and the difference between them, and found there is a couple missing, in the installed version.

Under this, is the commands, and outputs from the live version:

root@Kali:~# lspci | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller (rev 09)

root@Kali:~# find /dev -group video
/dev/video0
/dev/fb0
/dev/dri/card0
/dev/dri/renderD128
/dev/dri/controlD64

root@Kali:~# glxinfo | grep -i vendor
server glx vendor string: SGI
client glx vendor string: Mesa Project and SGI
Vendor: Intel Open Source Technology Center (0x8086)
OpenGL vendor string: Intel Open Source Technology Center

If i do the same thing, from the installed version, i notice there is a couple of drivers missing, and it maybe thinks it is a virtual machine?

root@Kali:~# lspci | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller (rev 09)

root@Kali:~# find /dev -group video
/dev/video0
/dev/fb0

root@Kali:~# glxinfo | grep -i vendor
server glx vendor string: SGI
client glx vendor string: Mesa Project and SGI
Vendor: VMware, Inc. (0xffffffff)
OpenGL vendor string: VMware, Inc.

Is there anyone, that can help me get this to work?
Any help is appreciated :-)
