Windows 7: problems with nvidia geforce 420 and second monitor

problems with nvidia geforce 420 and second monitor


I installed Win 7 on my tablet HP TC1100.

Win7 doesn't recognize the graphic card nvidia GeForce 4 Go 420 (32 MB, 4x AGP).

The display of the tablet ist running correctly (1024x768),
the second monitor (1280x1024) shows the same screen in the simple resolution.

There's no second monitor in the system settings, only the standard vga-graphiccard and a pnp-monitor.

I tested some nvidia-driver (185.20vista32, but its not possible to install (there a incompability error).

Someone can help me?
