I built 2 HTPCs based on the Asus M2NPV-VM motherboard with onboard nVidia 6150. Neither one will drive a Dell 1907FP with nVidia drivers installed. The monitor will work fine in safe mode, or if nothing but the default microsoft VGA drivers are installed. I have contacted Asus support, Dell support and nVidia support, and guess what........that's right a waste of my time. To me it seems to be a drvier issue. the Dvi port definately works. I can drive my Sony HDTV via DVI to HDMI just fine. When the Dell monitor is connected I can get a signal all the way up until Windows logs in. At this point the drivers kick in an the monitor looses signal. I can hot-swap from my HDTV to the monitor after Windows has booted, but as soon as I try to enter the nVidia control panel, the driver autodetects the monitors and the Dell blanks out. I have tried every nVidia driver I can get my hands on and they all do the same thing. Anyone got any ideas how to force the DVI port to stay on?
