Second monitor has "no Signal"

    This is weird because everything was working just fine. I have 2 TFT
    displays connected to my Windows 2003 server box. I have nVidia
    GEForce5500 Graphics Card whose DVI-to-VGA adapter I used to extend my
    display. I set the second one (Daewoo HL710S) as the second monitor
    with "Extend your display" property in the Display settings. This was
    working just great for 3 weeks.

    Last week I may have touched something on the connectors and the second
    display since then shows "NO SIGNAL". Of course I checked, tightened
    and did this again for the DVI-to-VGA adapter as well as the incoming
    connections.

    I noticed that when the computer boots up, the second monitor displays
    just fine (the Windows 2003 Server logo etc). As soon as the machine
    boots up the display says "no signal".

    I read somewhere the DVI-to-VGA adapter is basically an analog device.
    But all this was working just fine, I dont know what I touched off for
    this to stop working. Any ideas anyone?

    Has to be some kind of driver or Windows configuration problem, I
    think.. By default, before the driver loads, the card outputs on all
    displays. After the driver loads it only displays on the outputs it's
    been configured to.
