Re: Persistent nVidia driver problem

Here I am a year later and I'm having the same problem. I use a pair of
2001fp's with an ATI Radeon HD 2900XT. Every time I log in (to only the
main monitor working) I have to change the 2nd monitor resolution, click
Apply, click no to NOT keep the change and then hit ok. This turns the
2nd monitor back on from a black screen. There are many variations to my
problem (turning a monitor off and on causes me to start the whole
process over) and I can't find a fix. This is a huge problem for me
because if the primary monitor decides to act up I have to fiddle with
input cords and reboot a ton to get things back in working order.

Is anyone still having this problem? Does a fix exist?

Re: Persistent nVidia driver problem

I've had the same problem with two Samsung screens on an XP system with
ASUS MoBo and an Asus EN8600GT Silent.
My first thought was a faulty videocard, but is also ocurred with an
EN7300GT Silent. I then tried all the usual: new nvidia software etc.
Nothing helped.

The solution at the time was to disable the system power saving scheme
(screen off after 5 minutes) Goto Display properties => Screen saver,
Monitor Power at the bottom => Power (this brings you to the power
options poperites), then enter "never" for all power scheme options.

Recovering from a dead second screen doesn't require a reboot. It is
easier via the Nvidia control panel. Simply return to 1 screen mode.
You may have to swap the monitors plugs on the card and choose the other
screen as the primary screen.

hope this helps , regards edwin
