I thought the iorceware drivers were fr the Nvidi card.
And you are right, I have the latest nv card driver meaning I have the latest forceware, and also I tried the drivers LG supplies for the monitor itself.
DrK whats monitor are you using?
From experience, using vga connection and hot plugging back to DVI you will have issues.

Well, it is a single monitor, an LG L194WT. And, as stated before, I even installed W7 using only the DVI connector, everything worked fine during the installation, but it when blank in the final stages of the installation proccess, when the resolution changes, making the DVI unusable, so I was forced to use the VGA cable.

partly solution is Bios update

I have experienced the same troubles; working on a 24'' regularely the built in 13'' bugged me so much, that I connected my LG W2452TX via as analog and VGA cable. This being no solution of the situation (qualitywise) I ended up updating my bios and reinstalling the nvidia drivers.
That might help you, BUT only if you want only the DVI connection to work.

now my external monitor works fine; BUT as soon as I switch the built in monitor on (which I have to when I travel; and prefer to have as navigation screen) I reduces the picture to 50% (the left ones) of the screen the right part shows in the best case vertical stripes in multicolor. No settings change helps, Now I am looking for newer drivers, and help
