If, by "pc c2d 2.93" you mean a Core 2 Duo 2.93 GHz - that is NOT a PC, that is only the Processor.

Also, "Gigabyte G41" is NOT the motherboard, that is only the Chipset on the motherboard.

What motherboard are you referring to?

Which graphics card are you referring to?

Intel do NOT make graphics cards.

Have you connected the monitor to the NEW output from the graphics card or is it still connected to the mobo output?

Does your graphics card have its own power supply connector?

yes it is core 2 duo on a gigabyte GA-G41MT-ES2L mobo with 2 gb ddr2 ram on 667speed, a 320Gb HDD-sata, LG dvd multi drive.
VGA is built-in

together w/ the driver cd from the mobo i install all the driver but i restarted the lcd goes standby after "starting windows" appear. i tried to un install the graphic driver via safemode then it work but with not good resolution ofcourse..
im runnin windows 7 ultimate.

Is the graphics driver actually FOR Windows 7 ?...

by OldER Mycroft In reply to @ older mycroft

The driver that comes on the mobo drivers disc?

How did you survive the Windows 7 install without the monitor shutting down?

Did you try running WITHOUT installing a separate graphics driver? Windows 7 frequently installs a graphics driver when it is installing the OS.

I'm running Windows 7 (both 32-bit and 64-bit installs) on an
ASUS P5N-E SLi mobo with Nvidia 8800GT graphics and I didn't install ANY graphics drivers - Windows 7 did it for me (on both installs).

Have you tried to UP the resolution while in Safe Mode (using the Windows 7 graphics drivers)?

Windows 7 is a strange beast indeed ...

by OldER Mycroft In reply to @ older mycroft

I'm not entirely sure exactly WHAT would be your best course of action now.

When I mentioned that Windows 7 installed the graphics driver FOR me, I forgot to mention that Windows 7 fulfilled ALL of my driver requirements - I sat utterly amazed and watched while it identified my Canon printer and Canon scanner, installing drivers for them also!

So, you might say that as regards 'drivers' for Windows 7, I'm a complete novice because I've not used any per se.

You might care to have a go - and delete your graphics driver from Device Manager then re-boot. Windows 7 may well identify the graphics chipset and install a suitable driver on its own.

Other than that, I can only suggest you reinstall and LEAVE WINDOWS 7 ALONE. Don't install ANY drivers unless the system objects to not having one.

Maybe a repair install might work once you delete the graphics driver and reboot, with the install disc in the drive?

M'Board Specifications you will have seen that this M'Board only supports the following M$ OS's. Support for Microsoft? Windows Vista/XP

So here I'm assuming that you attempted to install a 32 Bit XP Driver which has messed up the OS If you want the Windows 7 64 Bit Driver you need to visit the Gigabyte Web Site and download from here

And if you want the 7 32 Bit Driver it is available here

Though personally I have no idea why anyone would be using any 32 Bit OS these days they are way too limited. Though as this M'Board only supports up to 4 GIG of RAM it probably doesn't matter all that much as you'll only be loosing a small amount of RAM if you install all 4 GIG.
