I installed Windows Server 2008 R2, on my home machine. I have two 24 inches monitors connected to this machine, but windows server doesn't seem to support them. Usually in Windows 7 there is an Windows Update that install the driver that does the magic, but Windows Server don't have this driver updates.

What can I do, suppose that I can, to fix it?

Edit: it seems to be a known issue, when HyperV is enabled on the server.

Install the driver. You know. MANUALLY. Download it from the manufacturer site, install it.

Installing this driver, doesn't solve the issue. – Fitzchak Yitzchaki Oct 28 '10 at 12:10
