Display problem with PXI-8196 embedded controller

I have a PXI-8196 embedded controller which has stopped displaying to the monitor when the windows login screen is to be displayed.  Since VNC is installed, I can access the computer and see that it is trying to use an 800x600 digital flat panel for the monitor instead of the connected monitor.  The system, Windows XP Pro SP2, so far has been resistant to my attempts to instruct it to not use this driver.  Has anyone seen this sort of problem before or have any ideas on a resolution?

This happens when you boot into Windows without a monitor attached.  The graphics driver defaults to an imaginary LCD display.
This knowledge base article describes the issue and gives several options for fixing it.
Best of luck.
