desktop freeze when attaching/detaching external monitor

Post by calen »

This problem started only last week. Everytime I attach or detach an external monitor or projector now, my desktop will freeze completely after about half-a-second. I'm on Gloria on a Sony VAIO SR VGN-SR35G. It uses the Mobile Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD. I have kept up with all the software updates.

This happened to me too. I solve the problem by hitting the key combination ctrl+alt+backspace and then removing/plugging in the monitor cable while the computer goes back to the login screen. Then i just log back in and everything is ok.
