VL5.9 Lite RC2 Laptop External Monitor Problem
« on: July 10, 2008, 03:02:51 am »


I'm using a IBM Thinkpad 600e...

The first time I connected a monitor to my laptop there was
not a problem. Since then I have had image problems when connecting the monitor:

        a.) Bad image on the  monitor: squiggly image or multiple image ghosting
        b.) Desktop screen does not power off when I connect the monitor, or  goes off and comes right back on

        c.) After I disconnect the monitor I have bad image ghosting splitting the screen in half.
              Logging in and killing the game does not release the  terminal.

Is there anything I can do to prevent any of this? (besides not connecting the monitor)  :)
