when you take off the vga from the 2nd screen and put it in another screen, i saw the laptop reboot.. (this is second time it happened).. is that coincidence or is there a correlation..

this is a laptop and already in charge and almost fully charged, so it could be due to power.

I'd test that further.   That shouldn't happen.    When a monitor is disconnected, Windows 7 will adjust the displays, but not reboot (by default).

Install updated graphics card driver from manufacturer website...reboot and check.
