Monitor loss in W98!
Posted on 1999-01-12
Since changing to W98 (clean install), I have noticed that every 6-7 times I boot up, instead of showing Plug & Play monitor, Windows has unknown monitor in the control panel.
This is somewhat aggrevated by the fact that I have a Matrox Marvel G200 card, which runs Matrox Quickdesk everytime I bootup. When the monitor is 'lost' I get an error message telling me that the quickdesk test has failed as it didn't know which monitor I had. I don't really mind, but sometimes my display goes a bit squiffy because of it!
When I have a successful bootup, 'Plug & Play Monitor' is shown in the control panel.
This is also the 2nd monitor this has happened on.
No driver discs supplied with monitor - the make is Belinea.
