the screen size of the monitor changes by itself. How can this happen?

This is the videocard: XFX GF 7900GT 256MB Extreme 2dvi vivo PCI-E

I have installed videodrivers with the cd that was with the videocard.

What do you mean? While you are working or after a restart or different user login, etc...?

Try reinstalling the video card drivers. Uninstall them first and then reinstall them. You might also want to see if there is an updated driver for that videocard.

Yes it is the driver for your video card. It is the unified driver for all GeForce cards.

Fenor

*EDIT* -- You can see your card listed HERE saying it is supported by the driver.

I see. I tried to uninstall the videocard driver, but I couldn't find it. It's not listed in the sofware menu.

In ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS in the Control Panel, look for the entry that says Nvidia Drivers and click remove. If you can't find that either, list everything in the Add/Remove list that has display or Nvidia in it and I will tell you what to uninstall. Also, go to START-->RUN and type devmgmt.msc and click OK. In the new window that appears, does anything listed have a yellow exclamation/question mark next to it? If any do, please list those as well.

So you installed the one that Fenor mentioned earlier? Did you uninstall it first? Go into the Device Manager and open up the Properties for that video card. Then go to Driver->Uninstall Driver. Restart and reinstall your driver.
