Windows 7: PC Crash Messed Up Monitors

PC Crash Messed Up Monitors

I was on my computer yesterday and I noticed my video driver started to fail (FireFox). The screen would blink and I knew at anytime I would see the blue screen of death. Then finally it happened, when I rebooted my pc there was a lot of changes..

I use double monitors with different backgrounds, after rebooting, the backgrounds switched monitors, when on the left monitor I had to move my mouse left to get to the right screen and vice versa, and my left monitor is now very small and difficult to read while my right monitor is too big.

I fixed the first few issues but cannot figure out how to change the sizes and get them back to normal. When attempting to change the larger screeen to make it smaller and more manageable to read, I am getting a message saying that its below 600 pixels. I'm looking at the size and its saying that its 640x480. I doubt this to be true as I've never had a problem with the monitor size and used it with Windows 7 for the past year. It's also a larger LCD monitor

Thanks for the help!

I also looked to see if my video card was still there or if it got deleted in the crash. It is still there
