    It sounds like you installed the wrong drivers. Have you tried going into Safe Mode Video to Standard VGA. Then try again? You can access Safe Mode by depressing and hold down the Ctrl key after the hardware list is deplayed.

    Go to start/settings/control panel/display/settings tab/advanced/adapter/select the change button, follow the prompts until you see the check box for show compatible, this will give you a list in the left hand column. Scroll all the way to the top, select standard vga, hit okay, follow prompts, reboot. You will reboot with standard vga drivers and it will look terrible.
    Now reinstall your drivers
