2) Did that and nothing
Was the boot screen (before Windows loads) not shown at all?!

Same problem with a twist; it works on some monitors. Actually, I am trying to run dual monitors of an advanced mini dock via the VGA and DVI outputs with a T400 7417-TPU w/ Intel graphics. Below is detail on what works and does not.
T400 7417-TPU w/ Intel 4 Series Express graphics - VGA out works. DVI out to a 5 year old NEC MultiSync1560M works. DVI out does not work on an Acer X223W or a ViewSonic VP2030b.
T61 6463-CTO w/ Intel 965 Express graphics - works with all DVI and VGA monitors tested.
T61 6460-CTO w/ Nvidia graphics - works with all DVI and VGA monitors tested.
In the Intel graphics properties dialog, a second monitor option is instantly displayed when the NEC is plugged in. The new hardware tone will sound when the other DVI monitors are connected, but they are never presented as an option in the Intel interface.
Environment: Windows XP Pro, SP3 all critical patches. Current graphics drivers on all systems. Same dock and cables.
