the vga works, but the color is....

thinking of giving this system to my son in September and go build myself one with the latest specs. Shouldn't have more problems then.

yes, and I'm curious when someone or nVidia, is coming out with a stable driver.

There's no way this has anything to do with the NVidia driver. The more I think about it, the more this sounds like a hot-swap issue and something is supported differently in 7201 than in prior builds. Any card readers on that monitor? It's *physically impossible* for the PC to be turned off by the MONITOR if it's connected via VGA.

hmm.... that's what I could not figure out. But it is possible in one single scenario. When one switches the power off the monitor, the monitor will send a signal to the graphic card telling it there is no longer a display device available. But this is a very basic driver function/programming that has existed forever... and no one else seems to be having this issue....

Win7 x64 7127
 
 

I had something similar with my Media PC, with one of the builds I've tried (could possible be 7127, i've had about 4 different builds since Jan...). Anyhow, Samsung LCD tv connected via hdmi, to an Nvidia 7600GT, everytime I powered off the screen the PC would bugcheck and reboot.

Eventually resolved by a driver upgrade (i think to the latest on WU, but take a look at guru3d or Nvidia Win7 betas - as always with Nvidia there's always a number of issues, so if using them you might want to check every now and then for updates).
