Dual Monitors: 2nd Monitor Xrandr states Disconnected?

running xrandr -q I get this:

# xrandr -q
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1680 x 1050, maximum 8192 x 8192
VGA-0 connected 1680x1050+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 474mm x 296mm
   1680x1050      59.9*+
   1280x1024      75.0     60.0  
   1280x960       60.0  
   1152x864       75.0  
   1024x768       75.1     70.1     60.0  
   832x624        74.6  
   800x600        72.2     75.0     60.3     56.2  
   640x480        72.8     75.0     66.7     60.0  
   720x400        70.1  
S-video disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
HDMI-0 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
Everything was fine two days ago, after latest slackpkg update.

But, Both Monitors are connected ...

Looking in /etc/X11:
xorg.conf is now renamed xorg.conf-vesa
Nothing in inside xorg.conf.d/

thinking I may have to update graphics driver?

What Slackware version are you running and what updates were done? And what type of video card are you using and were you using opensource or proprietary drivers?

Also, have you checked your cables and verified they aren't bad?

Might want to try swapping connectors if possible or unplug the one that is working and see if it picks the other one up..
