Hi there, looking for some advice because Dell are useless and I have ran out of ideas.  I bought my Dell back in Oct and since then i've been using two monitors off of one gfx card.  This has worked fine until the other day.  I have 2 tft screens, one running off of the gfx cards digital port and one running off of the analog port.  The other day the screen running off of the digital port just went dead, no reason, just ---nothing.  I shut down the pc and restarted and no life came to the monitor, tried all the usual stuff - drivers, new cables, trying changing the monitors around but nothing worked, the monitor doesn't even respond when the PC's doing the usual start up/bios check - normally both monitors display identical information until the drivers are loaded in windows, but that's not working it is hardware related.  However, I borrowed a convertor from my friends PC to convert the digital output to a secondary analog from the gfx card and when i changed the monitor and cable to operate in this mode it worked fine.  Both monitors are fully operational and all cables have been checked on other PC's, but does anyone know why this would happen??  Don't mind having to use the analog but would prefer to have my main screen running off of the digital like it was ... any ideas/comments would be grately appreciated.
