If you can read this....

When I connect a 2nd monitor, the initial display starts out "If you can read this message, Windows has successfully...."

Why, oh why did they waste time and effort on the words "If you can read this message." It would be more than sufficient to say "Windows has successfully...."

It's very possible that the 2nd monitor can't handle the initial refresh rate, or the display card not displaying the contents correctly making the contents not readable.  Therefore, when they say 'If you can read this message... bur bur' they have their point.
