Weird Graphics issue I've never seen

Question

Posted (edited)

Hi. I installed IAtkos S3 V2 on a Dell inspiron 537 desktop with G41 chipset, and a Pentium 2.5 ghz dual core processor.  I installed kext I edited that should have gotten the integrated graphics working, but when the kext is loaded The screen is overblown, and off center. I'm using a 50" Samsung Element tv as a monitor, through vga...

Also this is only half the issue, because I think that my computer thinks it has 2 monitors, because my primary monitor is also the ONLY monitor connected, and it's displaying the extended desktop instead of the primary workspace and I can't access the menu bar or the dock to change anything. 

Things i've tried to fix it: Placed new folder on desktop, opened it, navigated to utilities to open system preferences, but when it opens it is displaying on the ghost monitor instead and i cant see it... I have tried moving the mouse off screen in an effort to grab the window, but i can't grab the right thing. It's like playing horseshoes blindfolded... 

Is there a few lines of code i can use to fix this?

well if it loads the kext i dont see why it will not work because it's just monitor detection issue at this point. has to be a way around fishing for windows off screen. the fact that it loads the kext successfully makes me think it is capable of working

GMA x4500 is not supported and will never be. You can't get QE/CI to work on that graphics. Sorry.
