So yesterday everything was fine, my 2nd monitor turns on when I hit the power button, etc etc.  Today however, when I power up my PC the 2nd monitor won't turn on.  Once I log in, I check my screen resolution setting, and Windows recognizes there's a 2nd monitor hooked up.  I'm even using Actual Multiple Monitors as well (and I have it set to give each monitor a separate taskbar) and when I drag a window over to the other side it pops off my main monitor's taskbar (thus it's on the other ones).  What's going on here?  >.<


EDIT:  Aaaaand now it decides to turn on.  I've got a feeling it might be starting to go?

I've checked all the cables to make sure they're fully seated btw, and still nothing.
