I will try. Thank you!
Unfortunately I cant try it right now... I switched GPUs with my friend that has vga only monitor. Between the two of us, we have only one dvi>vga adapter and its Sunday so I cant buy another one. I'm using his 4850 at the moment with no problems. I'll try it either later today or tomorrow.
It does sound like it might work with that test.. I'm just very unclear on what the heck is wrong with regular detection...
