So I have to monitor questions, actually.
I recently upgraded my monitor to a pretty slick HP widescreen LCD. Not top of the line by any means, but it fit my budget, and I was using an old-ass (at least 10 years, probably more) Gateway CRT. That was top-of-the-line back in the day, it was designed for high-end graphic design, and it aged pretty well, but it was time for an update.
Anywho, I finally have a monitor that can do DVI! Yay! But now, every once in a while.. (Maybe once every 3/4 days) when it powersaves the monitor off, no matter what you do, when the computer wakes back up, the monitor won't come back on. I can search for signal, change inputs, blah-blah-blah, nothing.. The only way to get picture back is to unplug, and replug the DVI cable. Um.. Why?
Second question: My son-in-law is using a sanyo LCD TV for his monitor.. Looks real nice. Except again, every once in a while, when you switch it back to the TV input, the picture is -really- dark. The solution is to open up the "NVIDA Control Panel" or whatever and use the picture locations to adjust the picture back and forth a couple times, and then it looks fine. He's taken to just leaving the control panel minimized all the time, so it's there when he switches back to his computer.. I can't for the life of me figure out how to fix that.
Any help would be appreciated =)
