hey so im sure someone has already had this problem, but its very irritating! i have a Windows Vista and the monitor is an HP w1907. When i press "switch users" right when it takes me to the other accounts the screen will just go black and the light stays on the monitor. if you press the monitor off, then on, it will go back to black, i literally have to wait like 1 minute then turn it back on?!? also, if it doesnt turn black when i switch users, it will go black once i logged on to another account. not sure what its all about but very annoying. please help! thanks
