Display Control on LP VL

Post by JohnGrimshaw » Sun Feb 17, 2008 10:14 pm

My Light Palette VL gets a tough life, going place to place running things here and there. Just tried to run up a second monitor on the second output for the first time in a couple of months, and I cannot get the software to believe the hardware exists and is connected. No amount of rebooting seems to help.

(yes, I am aware that display properties must be set in the graphics adaptor area, not the windows area).

It "should" just give me the option of "Monitor 2", but all I see is Monitor (working fine) and Notebook (the fake display that the software seems to think is connected)
...and for more entertainment industry trivia and useless facts, just ask:

No tech bulletin on this,

Boot the console without any monitors, let it run for 2 minutes, then power down the console
. .a - the VGA reverts to LCD- an unavailable hardware option.
Connect monitor 1&2 and boot again. There will be no VGA output.
While powered, press and hold CTRL Alt F1 for more than a few seconds.
VGA 1 should return within 10-30 seconds.
Then go to the Advanced setup window as before to engage VGA2.

If VGA2 is not available as a choice, it is a hardware failure. I suggest you contact Mr. Dave Park to organize a replacement 020 processor.
