    I have a 1 year old Gateway GT501GH with a gateway 21" widescreen. When I start the computer the VGA dialog box pops up in the middle of the screen but disappears before i get to my home page.
    Lately, the VGA box has been popping up like normal during start up but won't disappear for a long time(usuall a minute after gettting to home page). Sometimes it wont disappear at all.
    I unplugged the VGA connection from the back on the lcd and computer and reconnected them, but it still does it. The computer has a DVI input. Should I try to connect it this way and hope the problem goes away? I don't have a dvi cable so i would need to go buy one.
