Hi, I have
2 of these video cards: XFX HD-577A-ZNFC Radeon HD 5770 (Juniper XT) 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
One of my monitors is a Samsung Syncmaster T240 24 inch. My other is a 24 inch Westinghouse.
I have them both plugged into the same video card as I have crossfire running. Last night I just turned my monitors off (not my pc), then when I woke up today, I turned them both on, but the samsung, only stayed on for a few seconds (screen had a really dark tint) then it turns off. And it does this everytime I turn it on. I am stumped.

Have you tried swapping the ports around to see if the Samsung works ok in the port that the Westinghouse is hooked up to and vice versa, what happens, also have you tried connecting to the second card, be sure to power down and remove the power cord from the wall when swapping connections as a residual charge may be left in the system.

Yes, tried this.

After further research, it seems to be a problem that many Samsung monitors are having.

I contacted the manufacturer, and they want me to send it to them for repairs, they pay for shipping, parts, and labor, so I'm gonna go ahead and do that.

Thank you for your time, as it's highly appreciated.
