    Boot into Safe Mode . . tap F8 repeatedly from the time you press the power button . . then go to Device Manager and roll back the driver . . ( Right click on it, select update driver, roll back ) Reboot and all should be as it was

    OK...in desperate attempt to fix it, i tried to use the tv/out and i was able to see my desktop so what i did was i installed the driver that i downloaded in nvidia, and then i turned it off and put it back to its original monitor i started my pc,,i was amazed cause i know see my desktop once again, thou i dont know what really changed,, but when i started some of my games, i noticed that it was a bit of laggy, and i noticed that the little box in the upper right, near the "minimize", "maximize" button is gone,, is it normal?
