Disappearing Displays

ermooney asked
Last Modified: 2013-12-22
Upon restarting two separate machines, two things happen:
1.  On HD 5650. DVI plugs switch.  The one that worked on shutdown no longer works and the DVI plug has to be switched to the other one for an image to appear.
2. On dual DVI-HDMI display on HD 5770, neither appears on bootup.  Only when HDMI cable is dsconnected does display appear on DVI.  When HDMI cable is subsequently connected, both displays apear just fine.
Is there any fix for these problems?  Thanks.
