8800M GTS drivers broke my dual-screen setup

  1. Hi,

    I am planning on playing some games on my laptop and decided to update the drivers for my graphics card (8800M GTS). I uninstalled the one I had from "Uninstall programs" and then installed the most recent release for my card. I had an LCD monitor plugged by VGA in "extend desktop to 2nd screen" mode, but now the option does not show up anymore.

    How can I make it show up again to be able to use my 2nd screen as I was doing before trying to update my drivers?

    Thank you

    Do a system restore to a time before you messed with the video drivers. You could try "rolling back" the video driver from the Device Manager, but since you uninstalled the old drivers, you might be out of luck
