Here is a "it just worked" experience. Lenovo T500 W7 Pro-64, Intel Chipset updated to V188.8.131.526 GM45 Driver and a ViewSonic 24" monitor. Plugged the monitor into my 2504 mini dock D-SUB port, powered it up, booted W7 and everything just came up. Put the T500 display in standby mode, adjusted resolution (1920 x 1080) on the wide screen, closed the lid on the T500 and away we went. My eyesight is suddenly much better!
