Question about Pine Technology XFX GeForce 7950GT, (512 MB) PCI Express Graphic Card
I've had 2 monitors (Acer AL1916W) for about a year, working fine. Yesterday when I turned my computer on, the 2nd monitor was displaying "no signal". Only one monitor is listed in the device manager, and going to the NVIDIA control panel and trying to "force detect" fails to detect the 2nd monitor.
It's not a problem with the monitor - any monitor plugged into the primary slot works fine.
Yesterday I tried various things, such as updating/rolling back drivers, disabling the Vista theme, and trying to do a Windows "repair installed" (which failed), and eventually the 2nd monitor worked for no apparent reason. Well, I went to bed, and today when I turn my computer on.. it's broken again. Only this time fiddling around did NOT randomly fix it. (And I'm not really sure why it was fixed the first time)
I rely on using both monitors for my work, so if anyone has any ideas, I would appreciate it.
A quick question, Are your monitors using a DVI output from your graphics card?
When was the last time you remember them both working, and what display driver was you using?
have you tried swapping both vga/dvi cables round and booting in safe mode?
see if that helps..
