Windows 7: Video problems with all games

Windows 7 RC 64-Bit Build 7100
Video problems with all games


I've just installed W7's 64 bit RC here on my laptop, and since then I can't run any game in widescreen mode. Even if I change this manually on the game's options (did it with Team Fortress 2 and Left 4 Dead), it ignores the changes and forces 4:3 again.

My computer's processor isATI Turion 64 X2 Mobile, and I'm using an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2400.

Windows 7 RC Ultimate Build 7100 X64

If your sure that the updates are the problem you could try to manually uninstall latest updates. Maybe you'll find out wich update causes the problem. Did W7 update the drivers for your graphics card?

Windows 7 Beta Build 7000

I guess it's optional update called NVIDIA driver update for NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT (Prerelease - WDDM 1.1), but i don't know how to uninstall that, it's not on installed updates list.
