    It should be the Power Cable. I can't think why the card would rely on the socket for when it's got a direct 12V line from the power supply going into it. (And 5V line too.)

    humph :p tweaking it has made the soundage work again.. but the cable was in and the sockets were glowing before.. i hate the d2x so much! (why is the damn power cable on the mobo side of the card! )

    but good shout, I'd totally forgot that it had that power cable in it!

    Ergo to sum up this epic 4 page thread..

    Much thanks to all those that put forward good ways to power my totally needed 3rd screen, and those that fixed audio after I foolishly opened my case!

    and woooo 3 screens and music! :D

    Good thing I've done the same to mine, huh? It's confused me before, it was only when I caught it again reseating the card (While it was running, hooray for stupidity!) that it worked. Then I had the typical Lightbulb moment.

    Harlequin i was thinking of using a doublehead2go thing but preferred full nvidia all the way through just to make sure it all played well together

    TuNdRa - indeed! I'd have gone mental trying to work out what it could be - those D2Xs are an arse:/
