It is not a problem with your display's or anything as such. It is the fact that a part of your video card burnt out and only works as a VGA adapter. I know, because mine did the same, I took it to a video card tester and found out that I lost the GPU in the card that processes OpenGL and other 3D settings, so when it's trying to use these .dll's, the card no longer responds and shuts off the display.

So my suggestion to you guys is to go buy a new video card. It has nothing to do with your OS or a virus, or a driver. It's the fact that it died. And I feel your pain.

Pain is still here. I've changed card from ATI to NVIDIA, and the same effect. No news on solving the problem?
