Windows 7: ATI Radeon HD 5000 Series/Win7 64 bit help

ATI Radeon HD 5000 Series/Win7 64 bit help

I just had our company IT person complete a fresh install of win 7 64 bin on my Dell XPS 410. Prior to that I recently installed one of the AT HD Radeon 5000 series (don't have the exact model # near me). It was installed and software was DL. The software gave me the Catalyst to control my card. I was using two monitors to play Microsoft Flight Simulator. The Catalyst allowed me to stretch the screen so I had a full cockpit view. Of course this also made my windows desktop screen stretched also as one full screen.

Now that I have win 7 fresh install and the DL update Catalyst for the graphics card. I don't have the option any longer to stretch my screen. The new catalyst doesn't have the option.

NOTE: I first attempted to install the original software from disc that came with the graphics card but it would crash my computer everytime.

Can someone help me. I'm not a computer genious AT ALL!!!!!!

What is the difference between the Radeon Mobility HD 5000 series and 4000 series? I know the 5000 supports DirectX 11, but how is this a good thing? What is new? I've heard of Eyefinity, but I don't see how that and DirectX 11 will help at all on a laptop.
