After rebooting the PC, I was going to change the desktop, but when I try to enter into the "Disply Properties", I realize that the "Appearance" button, the "Screensaver" one and the "Settings" one has disappeared... I can only change the Desktop Theme... :thumbsup:

" I saw that my graphic card was bad configured" Where did you see this at? Your card might just need to be reinstalled. Its a simple process. Or even some updated driver.

I have a NVIDIA GeForce Mx 4000 and every time I restart the computer, it's disabled. I go to control panel, system, I see the harware and it's with an admiration sign next; I reinstall the drivers and it seems to be fixed but then, I restart and it's bad again... :thumbsup:

Hum.......almost like its resetting it self or even uninstalling itself? Really weird....Have you updated the drivers for it? Have you ran or run often windows update? It doesnt sound like no virus to me but you could post a log in HJT log forum just for fun. I have never seen such my situation was different. But I went to google and found this site! Look around it a bit It might solve your problem...Then come back and keep us informed.....Thanks

You may want to delete the video card from the device manager, reboot, and then see if it reinstalls the drivers. If it doesnt, and just makes it a generic vga card, install the drivers for your video card again and see if it fixes the problem.
