So we are a little further now
Ok, we have gotten a little further now - I am actually writing this from my car (which shows huge improvements) - I got here by purchasing a cheesy cheap nvidia 5200, but don't knock it, it works! HOWEVER now I have other issues:
1. Streetdeck locks up intermittently
2. I still don't think I'm having fun yet
Any ideas on this one that doesn't involve replacing the motherboard?
oh yeah, and by the way, the bug issue with the 915gm and the lilliput came directly from the research from the support group at streetdeck - they said the response from intel was that this was an issue where if you didn't turn on the monitor at the right time, it wouldn't work. However, maybe it's just me, but I don't think turning on the streetdeck should involve any voodoo magic to get it working (and it probably doesn't normally, it was just the hardware I chose)...
