oh and I would like to add that with one monitor plugged in some times the pc freezes and the screen goes one color with lines across it (happend before but fixed by changing the G-Card settings)now I got all the right drivers and that didn't work but I did a FULL system check and it took 6 hours and was fine for a few days now as i said above happens, it's not power issue because it can happen with notpad even opend its just random, maby theres a fault in the G-Card?:S

well, this doesn't exactly sound like a monitor problem, never happened to me but try to hook up the monitor to another PC, if its the same problem then perhaps you need a new monitor, however it could very well be a driver or GPU problem, i have had my GPU driver fail and the whole screen went green lines. also, as a last resort try to switch VGA cables or w.e you are using to connect to the monitors.
