I had a decent 17" Samsung monitor 930B and life was great.

One day I see a HP w2207 22" with the rotating screen and thought it would be great for working with trueSpace. I hooked it up, loaded the drivers and everything looks great. Program after program worked like a charm until I tried trueSpace 7.51. I would get the small startup screen and then nothing. Windows Task Manager didn't show tS running. So I try to start tS with the Ctrl double click tS icon to load the default.....Nothing.
I delete the default.ctx file and try to run....Nothing!
Maybe video memory so I tried different resolutions....Nothing.
I uninstalled trueSpace and reinstalled....Nothing!!!? What the....
Something was preventing tS from starting and I tried everything I could think of . Maybe it was a Registry setting but it looked clean. Crap Cleaner didn't help. Nortons wasn't blocking.

For a week I fought this Monitor and finally tried one last thing. Uninstall the Monitor drivers named " My Display" and that did the trick. Since part of this software allows the Monitor to "rotate automatically" I thought there must be some software conflict between the two.
So if anyone else out there wants to buy a HP Monitor be aware of this conflict. The Video card driver software is all you need.

This happened to tS6.6, on my machine, as well. For almost two years, I've been trying everything from fresh re-installs, to video driver rollbacks. This has left my unable to use tS for freelance projects.

I have a Gateway 22" monitor, which I got around the time tS stopped responding. The monitor pivots portrait/landscape, and uses EZtune as the desktop pivot management tool. Wow, uninstalled it and :banana::banana::banana: , tS lives again.

So I think it is the pivot-ware, not the actual hardware.

Thank you so much. :jumpy:
