I am using a dual monitor set up with a radeon 5870 graphics card. I am using a samsun 45 inch LCD TV, and an LG flatron w2286l. I have been using the two displays on/off or a year with out a problem. The TV is running through HDMI, and the monitor is DVI-D. Yesterday I had a friend come over with a lap top to play some DA II. We unplugged my monitor, and ran an HDMI cable to it, to the lap top. The monitor claimed it had a conection, but promptly went to sleep. We never could get the laptop to detect the monitor. I switched the monitor back to it's normal DVI-D cable, and low and behold, it is no longer detected by my machine. This is a major problem, as I only used the TV for movies, and the monitor for everything else. I have checked all my drivers
, everything is up to date. Does anyone have any ideas on where to start trouble shooting?
Thanks all for the help!
