Vista Display Problems Solved

Has Windows Vista been driving you nuts every time you unlock the desktop on a multi-monitor system? It has been for me so I did some digging and came across a great post on the Microsoft newsgroups and found the solution.  I just implemented it and it works flawlessly.

No more having to go into display settings and adjust my resolution and primary monitor each time I unlock or reboot my system.

Fix Action (Disable Transient Multi-Monitor Manager Task):

– Right click on My computer -> Select Manage

– Double Click Task Scheduler

-> Task Scheduler Library

–> Microsoft

—> Windows


– Highlight TMM in the center pane

– End & Disable the task via the action pane on the right

– Issue Solved
