Graphics card problems.

Specs: Windows 7
To cut a long story short I've had this graphics card for almost a year (nvidia geforce 9500 gt) and it has worked fine until last week when I switched my comp on and everything was enlarged. I changed the resolution but things weren't quite as right (I use windows 7 home btw) as my taskbar didn't show a pop up screen anymore and just web address'. Also whenever I try to play games now a message telling me that a suitable display device could not be found pops up. So I went to the nvidia website, downloaded the driver and according to my comp all updates have now been solved however, this message pops up still and I can't play on the games. What should I do?

p.s. on device manager the icon for my graphics card has a yellow triangle and black exclemation mark on the icon, I thought the additional info might help.

Thank you.

Remove all nVidia Drivers in Add/Remove programs, reboot, let Windows 7 re-install driver automatically.

The go to nVidia support and install the latest available driver/software package.

By the way have you checked this machine for both Virus and Malware infections or ever undertaken a disk clean up ?

I haven't no. But for what you suggested first; I did as you said however there are five choices of nvidia for me to choose from to uninstall; one was about the update some were about the graphics drivers etc. Which one do I remove? Or is it all of them?

Could be a blessing in disguise - the 9500GT sucks for gaming. Please post the make/model of your motherboard.
