Windows 7: 1 laptop 3 monitors

Windows 7 Home 32 bit
1 laptop 3 monitors

Hi All.

I have a bit of a problem. I have a laptop that I upgraded to Windows 7 Home 32 bit. I need to have two additional monitors set up. I want one monitor to show the same as the laptop monitor, (desktop) I want the other to have other information on it. I had it all set up on the laptop when I was using Vista, I upgraded to Windows 7 and have not been able to get it back the way it was. I am using a Triton video card. What I have tried so far is I plugged in both monitors using the VGA port and the video card, right clicked on the desktop and display settings but it only show the two monitors instead of 3 how do I add the third monitor. I appreciate any help that I can get. Thanks

It could be the upgrade it may be fixable reinstallling drivers for the video card - or the onboard card - go to the triton site and dowload the driver for your particular card and install it - uninstall the current driver and reboot then install the new driver - click more files for the video card drivers - you might also go to your laptops site - support downloads to see whats available or post your system specs and ill see whats available - below are the links to the latest drivers - if your onboard card isnt supported by w7 you might succeed in installing a vista driver in compatibity mode :

To install a driver/program in compatibility mode - right click the setup.exe file - click properties - click compatibility - check run in compatibility with vista - check run as administrator - leave the rest blank. Start setup.exe and install.
