    Hi,

    Until recently I've had no trouble with my setup but I turned it on a couple of weeks ago and had the monitor go into power saving, I swapped over the dvi connector to the other port on the graphics card and it worked.

    Now today its switched back to the original one.. and I can't work out why! Any ideas?

    Cheers,
    Jim

    Have you upgraded your graphics drivers recently? Or did Windows do it in the back ground? If nothing happens again, could be one of those things. If it does happen again, might be the first port is on it's way out?

    No graphics updates, and apparently someone at work has a similar problem. Very odd.. it just seems to switch between the two, will keep an eye on it!
