I have two monitors, one was just vga and the other vga to hdmi.
The dynex had no vga plug on it so I had to find an hdmi for it before*
As I found out later my new graphics card did not have 2 vga slots on it, it had only 1.
So bought a new HDMI cable to plug in.
Heres my current issue, my second monitor every once in a while will go black
and no it does not turn off ... it will just go black randomly.
Things I have tried.
1. Uninstalled drivers for both monitors in device manager as I was told if I did this I would get the option to adjust brightness back and maybe that could be the issue for the monitor going off.
2. Going back to graphics card default settings* I did a minor overclock not much at all, but just in case if it was the cause of the card I went to default and it didn't change the issue.'
3. Starting up in safe-mode seeing if that changed anything.
4. Disabling windows aero
5. Reinstalled lasted catalyst control center
Before any of you say it's my psu, why would it have worked before with two monitors graphics card and many other devices..
I know the 7850 uses more.. but not that much more. It could be my graphics card but it's brand new... I just want to make sure I can avoid buying a new graphics card or... a new monitor.
So if you could please help me, and if there is any more info you need please tell me!
Update, randomly just got a blue screen with very low cpu+ ram usage heres what it said.

Changed out my psu... Didn't help with the screen flickering... stopped the blue screens... What helped a little bit was when I turned up the power in the ccc for my graphics card... I put it from the default 0% power to 7% seemed to help a little but everyonce in a while the screen will go black.
