There is some bug between my graphics card and my monitor that results in the latter not being detected sometimes when Windows is booting up. I could really use a way to force reload the display driver and attach it to a keyboard shortcut. Is it possible?

Is it possible you have a faulty cable? –  Justin Pearce Feb 8 '12 at 16:42

@JustinPearce No, it's a crappy video bios that Gigabyte won't bother to fix. –  user697683 Feb 8 '12 at 21:10
@Raystafarian thanks, I'll check it out. –  user697683 Feb 8 '12 at 21:11
@Raystafarian That thread is about C#, which I know nothing about... so it's not much help for me –  user697683 Feb 8 '12 at 21:17
