dual Monitor setup.   Both monitors are VGA, we are using the VGA port off the motherboard, and a display port adapter from the PC to fire up both monitors.

Works fine, setup is fine, everything looks good.  then user (dispatcher in PD call center) reports that  1 or both of the screens goes black for a very short period of time, then comes back.

When I watched for this I only saw one monitor do this, no message on screen that signal was lost.

Checked for cables being loose, nothing notable to report wrong.   I am just curious if anyone else has seen this behavior in a dual monitor setup where both monitors are being run from motherboard video?

I am putting in video cards, also looking to make one of the monitors NON VGA.  will see how that works....
