Windows 7: HDMI output not working to my primary monitor

HDMI output not working to my primary monitor

I have Win7 ultimate, 2xNvidia 480GTX running in SLI and an ASUS VE278 monitor. It works fine using DVI but when I connect the monitor to the gc with the HDMI cable and switch the monitor to HDMI mode I get the Windows background, but no mouse pointer or anything to work with. If I try and boot the PC with just the HDMI cable attached the monitor says it can't find an input signal. Does anyone know what the problem here might be?

Now I have found out if I run dual monitor you can't use HDMI with S-vid or DVI at same time for some reason they fight Maybe this just something I have notice with vista and windows 7.

I'm not even trying to run dual monitors - I'm just trying to run one primary monitor via HDMI

HDMI output not working.
My laptop crashed when removing the HDMI cable... totally dead... had to pull the battery to get it restarted. Now unfortunately the HDMI output is no longer recognizing the TV unless there is a second VGA monitor connected. Does this sound like a hardware issue?
