When I boot up the monitor (Dell Flat Model E172FPt) displays the OS just fine... If I walk away and computer locks requiring Admin sign on... Prompt accepts user name and password, but monitor can't seem to display back to where it left off. I get a black screen saying 'CANNOT DISPLAY THIS VIDEO MODE'. I can remote to my PC and access all my sessions fine, but to get the monitor to display, I have to reboot and do another startup for the monitor to display.
