That's weird. I had a gateway LCD screen that was doing almost exactly the same thing from like the second day I had it. It would come/go, switch resolutions and it would sometimes stop, then start again. Called Gateway tech support (what a joke that was). After living under my computer desk for about 3 hours worth of connecting/disconnecting, rebooting, ect and nothing happening, I finally got a tech guy who immeadiatly stated, "your LCD screen is bad, I'll send you another." He was right, the next one was flawless and it has been for the last 1 1/2 years without any new events. I know you troubleshooted it and it showed on you other monitor, but, still sounds like somethings really wrong. You by all means did the right thing sending it back. You would have wrestled with it until you pulled all your hair out.
