    I assume that somebody has a cure for this somewhere. That said, this behavior seems to be typical.

    I have Intel G41 integrated graphics, and they pretty much do the same damned thing.

    I'm starting to suspect that there isn't enough communication between developers, to have a cohesive approach to the issue. It supposed to work together, but it doesn't.

    Graphics cards and their drivers have issues about which port the display is on during boot, then later, detection issues with TVs. Sometimes there is a specific priority boot order for monitors or TV, depending on which interface is being used (HDMI, DVI, or VGA).

    You can try install the latest drivers for your video card, that's all I got.

    I know this isn't much help, but I do feel your pain
