Does somebody have some experience with the following problem. I just remasterd from Xp to Windows 7(32-bit) a HP desktop with aditional Nvidia graphic card. The graphic card allows the users to use 3 screens(needed to use severall applications at the same time) and when they where working on Xp it worked fine but now on Windows 7 the VGA on the motherboard doesn't seem to detect the screen anymore. The other 2 screens are detected without any problem via the split on the Nvidia graphic card BIOS settings are adapted and correct. Thanks for the feedback.

With Kind Regards,

The multiple screen support is handled by the graphic card's video driver. What version of the nvidia driver are you using? – jdh Feb 28 '12 at 13:09
Hi, It is a HP Desktop so I checked on the HP site wich driver to use with Windows 7 (32-bit) On the HP site it is version from this year (sp55785.exe) – Michael Feb 29 '12 at 15:07
You didn't list the graphics card model number. Nvida driver version numbers are more like "295.73". The V8.17... might be a HP repackaging of an older driver. I would use the NVidiea update tool to check for latest and support. – jdh Feb 29 '12 at 16:34
