Thats just really strange, that you can attach another monitor and it will work, and attache you monitor to another comp and it will work. Both Monitors the same?

I really dont know what to say. Everything sounds normal enough.
Would you be able to switch them, the monitors? At least that will be a temp fix...
One thing you could try is looking in event viewer and seeing if there are any errors in there. Start>Run, and type: eventvwr.msc /s
If there are any errors, post them here.

Have you actually tried that?

In safe mode go into Display props and change res to 800x600 and default Refresh, and reboot.. see what happens..

You said that in safe mode the screen stays on. That means it works at the default vga settings. 600x480 with a default refresh rate maybe 60hrtz. Go into the display settings and use those figures or go to 800x600 with a default refresh rate and reboot.

Right click Desktop, Proerties>Settings>Advance>Monitor, and make sure the box labeled: Hide modes that this monitor cannot display is ticked, and select 60hertz (or whatever the lowest one is). and reboot.

Post back..

ok thats right, cause sae mode disables a lot of the drivers and stuff.

Try booting into Windows normally, and doing the above steps.

You said you installed the latest drivers for the card. Usually you should use the latest driver that is signed by microsoft and let it go at that. The newest drivers are for game geeks that know what they are doing.

Your issue is a matter of the monitor (generic) the right display card and a stable driver. Get the computer out of safe mode and then raise your resolution up. Monitors go blank if you push them beyond their limits. You might try to unplug the monitor to reset it if it goes blank. I also find that you should unplug the computer to take all power off the motherboard when you do a hard reset. Compared to a soft reset which is having the computer restart.
