Windows 7: Windows 7 professional no multiple display option

Windows 7 professional no multiple display option

I had Windows 7 Home edition and had no problems with the dual monitor option.
My system crashed and I did a fresh new install of windows 7 professional.
The multiple display options are missing from the screen resolution screen.
The only thing that shows up is Generic PnP monitor on standard VGA Graphics adapter under display
The screen resolution shows up, but no multiple display option.

I went into HP drivers for updates of the drivers. The first two times, the message said that there were no updates. After the third time, the drivers finally downloaded and the dual monitors work fine.

Thanks for the feedback..
