    hi all,

    i've got a new problem that has developed when switching between a clone display setup (viewing pics etc on tv) and then back to a single display (lcd monitor). when i set to single display, the screen blanks then the pointer and only the pointer appears. it stays like this until the preview times out and then switches back to clone mode.
    wierder still, if i try to up the resolution from 800x600 (tv size) to 1280x1024 so i can just use the monitor and switch tv back to programmed pap, the same thing happens.
    this has never happened before...
    i have taken the cable out of the tv to eliminate an errant signal to no avail.

    any help much appreciated, 800x600 is like someone shouting in my eyes!

    spec:
    PROCESSOR: AMD ATHLON 64 3500+ 2.25Ghz (S939)
    M/BOARD: ABIT UGURU(MICROGURU) AV8 (S939) 64
    MEMORY: CRUCIAL DDR(266) 1Gb
    G/CARD: PNY NVIDIA GEFORCE FX5200 128Mb
    S/CARD: CREATIVE SOUNDBLASTER AUDIGY PLATINUM PRO
    WITH EXTERNAL BREAKOUT BOX.
