PC Crash Messed up Monitors

I was on my computer yesterday and I noticed my screen started to blink a few times (FireFox). After a minute of it acting normal, the screen would blink faster and then blue screen of death. I then reboot my pc and see something to do with a video card failure (im pretty sure that it said that).

I use double monitors with different background wallpapers, after rebooting, the backgrounds switched monitors, when on the left monitor I had to move my mouse left to get to the right screen and vice versa, and my left monitor is now very small and difficult to read while my right monitor is too big.

I fixed the first few issues but cannot figure out how to change the sizes and get them back to normal. When attempting to change the larger screen to make it smaller and more manageable to read, I am getting a message saying that its below 600 pixels. I'm looking at the size and its saying that its 640x480. I doubt this to be true as I've never had a problem with the monitor size and used it with Windows 7 for the past year. It's also a larger LCD monitor, almost the same size as the other monitor which is 1920x1080

I also downloaded amddriverdownloader.exe to see if I could update the video drivers but it did not change anything.

Any help is appreciated

How about : Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display\Screen Resolution, choose the native/recommended one and for orientation choose Landscape.

Or if your MB has VGA port try that. Remove the GPU first.

Thanks for the help. I've tried doing that a few times with no luck. I'm attaching a picture of what I'm seeing. The screen I am referring to is the small one on the right. It does not look small like that but rather very large.

Also what do you mean by MB?

MB = Mother Board. VGA = Video Graphics Array. 15 pin blue connector back of your MB.

Remove your Graphics Card(GPU) and plug the monitors in to VGA and DVI (25 pin white connector)port on the back of MB, if available, see what happens.

And can you please post your full system specs.
