So they tell me to change drivers when I told them its a problem on power on; and they rule out the logical fallback of using a digital to analogue converter (which just about every graphics card includes in the box). I posted this in graphics card cause I read that its the graphics cards bios job to tell the monitor to use digital or analogue so see a possible solution from changing the bios. I believe I updated the bios a while back. From one x1900xt bios to another x1900xt bios (just later release), the information I have to hand is 113-A52025-106. There used to be a lookup table on ATIs site but I cant find it.
