I had to re-image my laptop (W500) and install same Windows7 64 bit. There is no difference in the configuration with previous Windows7 64 bit installation. In both cases I used docking station and two attached monitors - one with VGA and second with DVI cables. Everything worked just fine before re-imaging. After completing OS installation it cannot recognize DVI port, and I'm stuck with one monitor.
Wondering if anybody had the same issue?

Is this is the only way to switch to ati mode using ThinkVantage Power Manager? I re-install Win7 from Microsoft installation CD, and don't have ThinkVantage Power Manager installed. Just wondering if there is any other ways to do the same without putting additional drivers... interesting to know how it worked before, since I'm using the same CD to install it and din't have ThinkVantage Power Manager before either...

Ok, here is what I did - took laptop out of the docking station, reboot, changed option in the BIOS. Screen is going black that I cannot do anything with my computer. So let it boot into windows and connected remotely from another computer. Scanned for hardware changes and still nothing. Mobile Intel is shown in the Display Adapters. At this point I'm in the corner...
When I reboot laptop display started to work, so I open BIOS and Switchable option was selected again. I'm wondering if "OS Detection for Switchable Grphics" option that is "Enabled" now has something to do with it?
Update: I disable OS Detection and still nothing...
