Driver missing

Hi i had a virus and i ended up wiping out my operating system, then i bought windows 7 and installed it. But when i did, the display adapter for my laptop screen disappeared. I have been dual screening for awhile because i had an accident and my screen cracked so i've been using an external monitor. I try to play online games but i cant because my graphics card is kind of innactive and i cant find a way to get another driver to get the laptop screen to come back on. can anyone help me?

Hi and welcome,

Are you sure this is a driver issue? I'm not sure if it is. If you cannot see the screen how do u install drivers?

Welcome to seven forums Dylankay: But it will work using the other monitor? If so would you provide your laptop manufacturer, model # and any other hardware you know of? Fill them in your user cp top of page click it then scroll dwon to edit system specs and fill in what you can. This way we can help you with your driver problem. that is if you can view 7 on the added monitor. Thanks. Fabe (edit) looks like the Captian beat me to it.
