Problem with 855GME and external display (digital)

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Hello all,

I currently discovered a problem with the used chipset Intel 855GME and an
external digital TFT I added to my laptop.

When laptop is started up with  the external display connected, there is no
problem to get the screen on both displays (clone mode via Intel driver,
preconfigured). After opening the laptop again (action on close : none) I will
get the picture on my laptop screen as well, even when I disconnect the external

But when I start up the laptop without the connected external display, I only
have the possibility to get the screen on one display (ALT-SHIFT-F3 or F4) or
again I have to configure the driver to clone mode.

Is there a way to have an automatic configuration for both (!) situations to get
the screen on both displays at the same time ? I know the external display is
discovered via PnP but it would be nice to have both outputs on all the time so
I can get the screen on the devices whenever I open laptop or connect display
without reconfiguration.

Thanks in advance
