Intermittent display on Nvidia Quadro 4 980XGL

I have a Nvidia Quadro 980Xgl 128mb graphics card which has Two separate DVI-I digital/VGA display jacks, One is working fine but when I plug the monitor into the other it starts fine then hangs at a blank screen.I realise this is probably a long shot but has anyone encountered the same problem even if it's a dual connection at the back on a different card.

Many thanks..

Are you talking about adding another monitor or just the one monitor but on the other dvi output...if the latter then this is normal...as the pc boots it will show it on both screens...then as windows loads only on the main monitor.....so its still loading....you just cant see it.

Just the one monitor but on the other dvi output,Im sure it worked before I may be wrong though.I might try it with another monitor so I have both plugged in and see what happens..
Oh the warranty has ran out so theres no going back.Is there a surface-mount engineer in the house? that happens to work for Nvidia??

I use two screens on my nvidia card.....and find that if I dont turn the main monitor on I cant log into windows.... but you can change the settings in the nvidia drivers....

I will have to try and find my other vga jack to try it out, I have a funny feeling my mate borrowed it a month or 2 ago so a hunting I shall go tommorow. So in theory 1 connector is a master and the other a slave, Does that make sense?
Nothing more will get done tonight as the wifes doing my head in..

AndySD, News update I managed to plug two monitors into the card and it does as you said 1 acts like a bootup screen the other acts as a spare were you can drag things from one screen to another, thats the only way to discribe it..
Many thanks 4 your help..
