One of my dual monitors will not work

  1. Yesterday i was working on my computer when one of my monitors went into power save mode, and it has been like that ever since. I have both monitors hooked up to the same graphics card and its the moitor on the DVI port that has issues. When I switch the DVI and VGA cables to opposite moitors, the problem goes to the other montor. I have tried using a different DVI cable but still no success. I fear its a problem with my graphics card, which is really not what i want to deal with right now, any ideas or tips?

    It sure sounds like you broke the video card. It certainly is possible to fry one of the heads, I know, I've done it. Analog and digital video have to be coming from a different chip, or at least a different segment of the same chip.
