No I didn't...I see the note there on the General tab saying some programs will not work properly without a restart, but (as is often the case), the phraseology was a little too ambiguous for me to feel confident in my interpretation... E.g., it wasn't clear to me whether the note applied to changes made from ANY tab of the Advanced Display Properties dialogue, or only to changes made from the tab where the note occurs. Also, I wasn't sure if changing the refresh rate of my monitor really qualified as a "program" or not... When I can't puzzle something out, I tend to err on the side of caution.
If you think it would be safe to try rebooting after I get the display anomaly, I will give it a go.
Hmm, would this be `S3 Graphics ProSavageDDR'? This is listed as a `Display Adapter' in Belarc Advisor's system readout and is the name of the only component listed under System Information > Components > Display on my computer.
Thanks for the tips, guys!
