Windows 7: Dual Monitor not working - icons disappear!

07 Feb 2010   #1

Dual Monitor not working - icons disappear!


I had WinXP on my PC running with GeForce 8400 GS + 2 Monitors.

Now i have installed windows 7, and on the first restart it gaved a black screen. Only when i removed the 2 monitor windows 7 started ok. Then i update my drivers to the latest ones, and turn off the pc to attach the 2 monitor.

Then windows started without any icons and taskbar and also with the 2 monitor off.

I have already try to change the monitor view on the nvidia panel and also on windows 7 (win key + p) and nothing works.

So in a simple way, it only works 1 monitor.

So anyone with a similar problem and advice on howto fix?
