Just asking it here, because someone might know what to do. I updated to windows 7 last week. But 2 days ago when i restart my pc i get 6 small exact copies of my screen, and they start at the same time.
Reinstalled windows 7 and got to log in, but I need to change my resolution to more than 800x600 and that's where I'm stuck. It won't let me change te resolution. Searched for it and they say my driver could be to old (graphic card driver) So Nvidia said to download Driver detective, but you have to register for it, and there is no way I can download a recent version for my driver.

Anyone got any help for me? I'm stuck with 6 exact screens on a 15" screen, this sucks.

    What graphics card do you have?

    I had a shitload of trouble with vista, every week there was something wrong, but since I updated to 7 about 3 months ago I haven't had a single problem.

    Just a typical comment from a Mac user, not an informed comment on the problem.

    This is a strange issue however. Only thing I can think of is somehow your screen is set on projector mode possibly, and somehow managed to make your 1 monitor slave out to 6? I honestly don't think that's possible, but that's the only thing I can think of.

    I would suggest possibly downloading a 3rd party driver, such as possibly one from Omega over here.

    Your problem is definitely a video card driver issue. However, if your computer is truly very old (your video card too), there simply may be a compatibility issue with windows 7 which couldn't be resolved at all but by changing the card.

    That's what I think, cause I had problems with resolution blocked too in the past and I resolved it by installing the original driver.

    I'll try to find it.
    It's not old at all, I bought it 3 years ago
