Windows 7: Mobile PC Display shows up in display preferences

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Mobile PC Display shows up in display preferences

Godd afternooon all,

I have an HP Pavillion DV9000 (Windows 7 Home Premium 64x from Vista) with a Nvidia Graphics Card. At one time I was running dual monitors but out of the blue, my main laptop screen stopped working. The backlight and inverter are fine. I have an external running from the VGA and that works fine. Last night all of a sudden for some reason while trying to troubleshoot the issue, I went to the display settings and bam, I was able to use my main laptop screen (displayed as: mobile pc display). While I was making some other simple changes to my laptop I had to restart and now it isn't working anymore.

1. Is there a way to make the Mobile PC Display option a default?
2. Since Windows refuses to give updates for this model, how can I update all of my missing drivers for windows 7?

Never-mind wannabe techs/nerds. I solved the issue myself.

Windows 7 Ultimate

Hey, I too am having the same issue lately. After servicing, my laptop display has changed to "Mobile PC Display", which I've no idea what it is. I've tried restoring it, formatting my laptop, to installing a new OS. Still the problem is persistent. Previously I could play my PES 2013 with ease and now it lags very much. Frankly I'm not in a financial condition to buy a new gaming laptop, at least not for now. Can you help me out by sharing how did you overcome this problem. Thanks!
