Help! Logisys LGX750 Monitor and ATI 8500DV

Archived from groups: alt.comp.periphs.videocards.ati (More info?)

Wondering if someone can provide some insight on this one. I have and Intel
845GEB MB with an ATI 8500DV AGP video card and a Logisys LGX750 17"
monitor. All hardware is good as I've done some extensive testing by
substituting other hardware. The problem is, with Windows XP SP2 (or any
version of Windows 98+ for that matter), the ATI drivers see the LGX750 as a
YPbPr device, and force the display to a green tinted 60HZ display. I cannot
change the display to monitor in the ATI settings properties box either. Is
there a registry hack for XP that will force the ATI drivers to not try an
auto detect the video device? BTW, I have tried several versions of the
Catlayst packages from ATI (very confusing, I might add) to no satisfaction.
Anyone have any ideas?

    I've got a CTX PL9 monitor that I can connect to the 8500DV, and it works
    perfectly. I'm trying to figure out why the Logisys LGX750 is identified as
    a device that requires component signals. Moreover, I'd prefer to figure out
    how to defeat the "detection".
