    I had a dual monitor setup working just fine. I have changed nothing. Two LCD screens into my Radeon HD 5850.

    Now it'll work if I plug a monitor into the top DVI on the video card; that's one monitor.

    But if I plug the other monitor into the bottom DVI, suddenly both screens turn off (orange light on monitor power button) and my video card starts a high-pitched whirring noise, like a fan. I've never heard this before.

    Any ideas?

    Sounds like the video card is dieing.
