Ok. I've reverted back to normal mode because of this.
There is however another problem:
If I connect my external monitor via DVI-0 I get sound hiccups. Every ten or
so seconds the sound starts to stutter.
If I connect the external monitor via VGA-0 there is no problem with sound.
Is this a known problem?
