Latitude D610 External Video Blanking ATI X300

  1. Reporting a problem, and solution;

    I have a dell D610 with dock and 20" LCD external monitor, using
    extended desktop so as to have two separate displays as one desktop,
    ATI Mobility Radeon X300, could not figure this out, the external
    display would blank out intermittently, try staring at a document and
    then BLANK, finally traced it to the ATI X300 video in the Latitude
    motherboard, Dell replaced the motherboard with an Intel video board
    915G based. We have extended warranty on systems, but this seems to be
    a defect of ATI, good luck.

    This took me months to resolve the problem with much troubleshooting; I
    have tons of hardware to troubleshoot, if you don't have that luxury
    maybe this article will help.

  2. Interesting, I haven't noticed this issue on my D610 with a X300 (though
    I'm not running Windows on it either).
