    I use 2 monitors, one using a VGA connector and one using a DVI connector. While using Windows Vista, they both worked perfectly. However, since upgrading to Windows 7, the monitor with the VGA connector sometimes just goes black for a couple of seconds and then comes back to life. There is no set amount of time between these 'black-outs', it can be once in 1/2 a minute and then not again for an hour.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks!

    Have you tried adjusting the refresh rate in the display settings, my monitor used to flicker mainly in M/S games until i adjusted there.

    None of that helped.
    Even weirder, when I put the VGA connector into the on-board video port, everything worked fine.
    Weirder still, is when I added a 3rd monitor by reconnecting a different brand monitor to the same VGA port on the video card, it still works great!
    Go figure.

    Could it be a poor VGA lead or did you use the same lead with the different monitor?
