I've been running into a problem recently with my monitor. I have Dell D630
Laptop with Vista Business x32 with a NVidia Quadro NVS 135M. I also have a
triple monitor setup using TripleHead2Go by Matrox. This wasn't a problem
before, but I take my laptop home a lot and bring it back to work. For the
most part, it would keep the resolution (or I would have to make small
adjustments and for that session, the settings would remain even after
locking my computer).
For some reason, my triple monitor keeps going to an 8 bit color scheme. If
I change it back to 32 bit, lock my computer, and log back in, the monitors
will blink and revert back to 8 bit. The only thing I can think of is I
recently hooked up my laptop to my TV to watch some movies, but I've done
that in the past on numerous occasions.
I have tried reinstalling the graphic drivers
(tried 3 different times) and
still nothing. I went to another workstation and plugged a different monitor
in and that worked fine. I tried changing the resolution on my 3 monitors to
something smaller. When I lock my machine and log back in, it reverts back
to the old resolution setting as well as going back to 8 bit.
I'm going to try reinstalling the drivers for the TripleHead2Go and see if
Are there any registry settings that I can change manually? My guess is
that Vista keeps profiles on certain monitor settings and I'm wondering if
that can be changed manually.
Any help is much appreciated.
