Dual monitor fail

Up until two days ago I was able to view my work on two monitors (both eizo S1901 digital). Suddenly yesterday the second one which is attached with hdmi was not recognized. After a couple of restarts it worked fine. Today same thing, after a couple of restarts I got both monitors but low resolution. Restart again and nothing. Drivers are all updated on monitors and graphic card (NVIDIA Quadro FX 580). Is it my graphics card?

Hello and welcome justkhaled mate seems rather too obvious but have you updated the driver lately if not this is it http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/77637/en-us

We would like at least the Dell model number mate so that we have the specs for it - always a problem if we do not know what is inside the machine You could use this though

Can you also run Speccy so we can see what the temps are on the machine.

All drivers are up to date, thanks for the info. It was a faulty graphics card. I fixed it by buying a new one
