I have an HP w2207 that I have been using for years and about a year ago I swapped out my trusted and true VGA cable (with DVI adapter) to use an HDMI Cable because apparently AMD won't let you play old 4:3 games in fixed aspect ratio unless you use an HDMI cable (I don't get it either).
Anyway now that I am done with my old game I want use my VGA cable again but for some reason after the Windows loading screen finishes the screen goes black and my monitor goes to sleep. I can load windows up in safe mode just fine using the VGA cable and have hooked the monitor up to my 8 year old laptop and had no issues so the cable and monitor works as well as the adapter.
I do not have another monitor to do testing with and have already uninstalled and tried using different driver
versions. Right now I am running the default windows drivers
and have uninstalled all ati/amd related software and cleaned the registry with CCleaner.
I just want to be able to use the computer with my VGA cable instead of an HDMI (the HDMI connection on the back of the monitor is loose and I get a bad signal at times unless I wiggle it).
I run Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
My video card is a Radeon HD 4600
