One of two DVI ports on Graphics card has stopped working

I have an EVGA GTX 480 which I have two screens hooked up to. Everything has been fine until today when one of the monitors would not detect any input. I have checked the cables, checked both monitors, and taken out and reseated the graphics card, but all to no avail. Both monitors are connected into the DVI ports on the graphics card.


I am wondering if anyone has any advice, or if as I suspect, the Graphics card has partly died...


Thanks in advance

Could also be something in your graphics driver setup.  Try a new driver and also go into the display setup and see if it knows it should have two displays.  If no newer driver is available try going into Device Manager and then right click on your adapter and Uninstall then reboot (do not let it remove drivers if it asks).  Windows will reinstall the adapter and sometimes that is enough (along with reconfiguring for two screens) to fix it.
