This is normal. Your monitor has a VGA hook in for regular definition. What it is doing, the monitor always by default looks for the VGA hook first. On my desktop it does the same thing until it finds a signal on the DVI.
I have the Vison Monitor and looked all over for the driver and found nothing specific to the monitor. However, I have a dual boot on my pc with XP and Vista and it works well with both. My current driver specs for this monitor are below. I hope this helps:
Driver Provider: Microsoft Driver Date: 6/6/2001 Driver Version: 5.1.2001.0 Digiral Signer:Microsoft Windows Component Publisher
The Company Internet Site at http://www.tdvvison.com/ is no longer available (877) US.VISON
There are lots of people that are having problems locating drivers. I suggest you look for a third party support driver or possibly some downloadable firmware. There is a company called "3 geeks and a mouse" that services and repairs the OLD TDV Vision Lappys. They possibly could provide you with additional support or suggestions. I hope this helps...good luck.
Can't say I really "fixed" the problem. I tried other monitors, DVI cord and took the laptop to a repair shop. Nothing worked. And then....boom.....it worked! No one knows why or how. No one did anything to the computer or monitor. It just works. Who knows how long it will work, but it works today.
The monitor isn't getting a signal from the computer, which is why the power indicator goes orange. There are two possibilities:
1) The computer isn't operating correctly. It may not be starting up at all when you turn it on, and you have a "no boot" problem to solve, or
2) The computer is working properly, shows all the signs of normal startup (hard drive activity, Windows startup sound from speakers, etc.). but video isn't reaching the monitor. There may be a problem with the video card (or on the system board if it's integrated video). Or the monitor itself is bad and not detecting the video. You can test this by connectng a known good monitor.
