2nd monitor blanks, resets constantly, with/without compositing 9600 GT
I've got a second monitor (obviously) that shares my 9600GT with my primary, both using DVI. I've never had a problem with it before, but a few days ago I turned it off for some gaming (monitors are different sizes). Haven't bothered to turn it back on until today when I wanted to do some coding. I did it in openbox with /usr/bin/nvidia-settings, and the monitor turned on, seemed to work for a few seconds, then died, then turned on for a few more seconds, etc. Does the same thing in xfce (with compositing) at about the same frequency of occurrence. I doubt it's a bad cable, and it's quite unlikely that it's a power issue as the monitor stays on- the display just blanks. I haven't tested it with svga since my card is DVI only and I can't find an adapter. I've googled it and none of the solutions or problems seemed relevant, Ideas?
