I had exactly this problem with the ATI display adapter software for a 
previous board.  Check what driver the video card's using and fiddle around 
with the generic SVGA or some of the other available compatible drivers. 
(all this in the Display Settings window).  Also, be sure that you have the 
*latest* driver for your board.  It's *not* the monitor.  Sony supports 
Adobe's ICM profiles.

Contact me off-list if you want some other pointers.  I spent way too much 
time getting this system up and running on a stable basis--and learned a 
*lot* about things that I'm not much interested in.
