Weird problem with my new nVIDIA GeForce FX 5200

  1. Ok i just got my new graphics card today...well its not that good but its the only PCI one i could get. Now i put the card in then turned on my comp and installed the drivers...then i reboot as it tells me to, I then get a 640 resolution and what appears to be 2 screens because i can trail the mouse to the right for ages....

    I tried adjusting the res but it did nothing. i think its adjusting the res of the apparent "Second Screen" which i don't have...

    I even tried to sort it out with NVIDEA's graphic option window but still no change. So now i have a 640 res screen with a a "Second Screen" which i don't even have...

    I then realsied i didnt disable my Onboard graphics, so i did that and restarted but there was NO difference...

    I need some help!

    Anyone?

    thanks.

    What Nvidia drivers are you using? From a CD or from the Net? delete the current drivers and reboot your computer...
