Current setup:
Windows 7
6870 MSI, Twin Fozzier II, RMAed to Twin Frozzier III
ASUS Motherboard M4A88TD EVO
Phenom 955

Everything was working great the past two years, I have two monitors, a DVI and a VGA. I have the VGA hooked up to the top port, using a DVI adapter, the DVI has always been plugged into the bottom port.

I work from home and plugged my DVI monitor to my docking station so I could dual display my work laptop.

After I was done I went back to my desktop I plugged it back and rebooted. I am not sure what happened but the PC will no longer display anything with both monitors plugged in anymore.

Here is what I know,

*when I have both the monitors plugged in the PC will boot, IE I hear the Windows load chime
*Same thing happens if I have only the DVI monitor plugged in the bottom port
*When I have the vga plugged in the top port only everything works

The DVI monitor works, I have verified this, also when I have it plugged in the bottom port I am getting a signal sent to it, as the screen will switch from no signal received more to a blank screen as soon as I power up the desktop. Also after the PC boots I can unplug the cord from the cards bottom slot and plug it into the top one and the Windows screen looks fine.

I RMAed the first one thinking the bottom port went out, the new is doing the same thing. I also updated my BIOS to the lastest version and this did not do anything to resolve the issue.

Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated

After messing around with it for awhile, I booted then plugged the secondary monitor in. No blue screen but no luck. After powering up the secondary monitor I noticed it was in Analog mode. I run this to my PC in a DVI port. I unplugged the Analog cable from the monitor and it worked. Kinda DERP for me to not notice that but after the problems the other one gave me I was thinking it was some type of BIOS issue.
