    I have 3x24" widescreen monitors and the one connected to the displayport is black and will flicker the onto the desktop every 10-30sec and then go back to being black.... I have the latest drivers as well so I dont know what is wrong :S

    can anyone shed some light?

    Two things to check.

    I have a similar problem at start up with mine monitor conneced to the diaply port. Gives a refresh rate out of synch error. If I unplug the display port cable and then plug it back in everything seems to work fine. Pain to do this everytime I start the PC though.

    Also check out this thread as this guy is having similar issues.
