^ Might help in figuring out what's going on, but loggan mentioned that
a reinstall could remedy the issues you're having. Otherwise you might
need to go into Windows at the Services and/or Components level and
get into loading/configuring those and etc.
I will check these and post about when I reboot I have filled in the ones I can remember, I am doing something which I cannot stop ATM.
Also, how about a different driver for the monitor you have? The CPU?
It's the driver for my monitor (iiyama crt), the only one I have and AMD mobile Athlon
