X301 DisplayPort flashing when connected

2009-04-08, 21:05 PM
I have recently purchased an X301 (2776-LEG) and am delighted with it. At home I connect it to a 22" HPW2228h monitor that includes a USB hub. I was using VGA but just got delivery of the DisplayPort/DVI adapter cable required.

There is no doubt that the digital interface produces a much better image. However I now have a problem that often when I open the laptop (I don't power it down during the week when at home) the laptop seems not to be quite sure about what monitor is connected. With the result that it flashes and goes blank then back to the laptop display every 15 seconds or so in a continual loop.

I tried disconnecting the USB connection but this doesn't help. I tried powering down and restarting as well as restarting with & without the DP cable connected but still no good.

Now I had to go back to VGA which is making my eyes hurt.

Im using Vista which I am also very happy with even though it doesn't seem to like IBM iSeries Access very much.

Can anybody help me please?
