Windows 7: Error with my graphics, long story

What we are wanting is a picture about like this.

You don't need to stick anything inside the case, in fact being a couple of feet back might help. We just need solid light so we can see.

Yay! I finally found out the problem, it was the video cord! Somehow, it projected the image to my monitor too huge and it wasn't capable/strong enough to bare with my PC (it came with a Windows ME 2000 Laptop) which was what my geek friend told me. So after searching in my large basement for 2 hours, I found the original one nice and clean and imported it. It does sound weird, but I got Aero, my old size and etc back. This also happened before when I was switching it the first time back in 2011', it was normal but now it changed.. now THANKS for all your help guys.

I'm still curious about the whole driver charade and what caused that to appear.

I'm glad you solved your problem, I would not suggest using that tech again though.
