VMware Video driver problems with Windows 7 and Windows 2008 R2

If you plan to use Windows 7 or Windows 2008 R2 as a guest operating system, do not use the SVGA drivers included with VMware Tools. Use the standard SVGA driver instead.

THE FIX:

To deselect the SVGA drivers installed with VMware Tools:

  1. When you install VMware Tools, select VMware Tools Custom Install and deselect the SVGA driver.

Alternatively, remove the SVGA driver from the Device Manager after installing VMware Tools.This information was taken from: VMware’s support site.
