HDMI connection issue under Linux on dual boot


Hello, i'm new in linux and i have a problem with my hdmi lcd under linux.
To be more precise , my graphic card is an Nvidia GTX 295 with hdmi output to a Dell 2408W LCD screen and the problem is that linux can't see the hdmi connection, working just with DVI or VGA.
I also have Windows 7 in dual boot with linux and in windows it works just fine.
To mention that i tried several linux distributions: Ubuntu, Ubuntu ultimate 2.7 and Sabayon 5.4.

Any help please?

Have you loaded the nVidia driver for Linux from their website? The 'stock' driver for Linux may not support that.

Also, from what I read, the HDMI port on the 295 is only enabled if the board is in SLI mode.
