Windows 7: Dual Displays and Hibernation

Dual Displays and Hibernation


For the past year, I've been using Windows Vista Ultimate and a dual display setup. Sometime during the summer, my dual display setup started not working. When waking up the computer from hibernation, one display would no longer be available (and would remain asleep?). I could move my cursor onto the sleeping display's area, but I couldn't see anything.

I replaced my graphics card but this didn't solve the problem.

I reformatted last night and am now using Windows 7 Home Premium. I haven't gotten a chance to play with dual displays since they're at my university dorm room. This morning, I fixed an issue where my USB devices would stay in hibernation despite waking my computer up. I disabled an option called "USB selective suspend setting".

Is there an equivalent for dual displays? What other hibernation options could be screwing with my dual displays? (I'll test when I get back to school.)

My specs are attached to my user.

Check you have the latest drivers. 84hz might also be an issue - have you tried it at native resolutions and default refresh rates?

I was originally using the monitor in a higher resolution but I could only get a 65 hz refresh rate. I think 1024x768 is the native resolution, since I can pick from 75 hz and 85 mhz now. Anyway, I went down to 75 hz but my monitor still won't wake up. I found drivers but they appear really old, so I'm not sure whether I should install them or not: Compaq 7500 Driver Download (Windows 95/98/Me/XP/2000) What do you think?
