I'll upload a video to YT tomorrow to explain it better.
I understand what you want to tell me, dont bother to upload video, except....

Sorry but downgrading didn't help either. =( is there any way to manually tell windows which display I have? or is there something I can do in recovery console?

Interesting thing was that I saw my monitor driver in windows update this morning...
It was optional update...
Run windows update and then check for updates...

Yes it was. Like I said in first post Yesterday morning everything was working fine, but not later that same day and that's when I came and asked help here. When I uninstalled the drivers in Device manager and rebooted, yes, nothing happened.

What makes this problem very odd is that i've been using windows 7 since the RC version was published and I haven't had any problems until now.
