As I mentioned in my first post it is a Nvidia Evga 7950 GX2 with 2 dvi outputs. Im doing a reinstall now to see if that will get any better results.
Is there a way to change the freq with the keys? If it defaults to 50hz maybe thats the problem. I know this monitor has to be at 60
sorry, missed that entirely... not sure about the freq but here are the steps from the wiki:
What to do if A/V Wizard does not start.
ress the number 1 through 5 on the keyboard or the remote control to switch to the connector that is active. Wait about 15 seconds, and you will hear that same sequence of beeps telling you that A/V Wizard has now restarted using the connector you specified. If you don't hear the beeps after 15 seconds, press the number for your connector again.
Keys for choosing a connector:
If you do hear the beeps, but you still don't see a picture, it's possible that the display you're using cannot handle 640x480. If so, then press the number 6-9, and 0, and shown below to select a resolution. Again, 15 seconds later, you'll hear the beeps when A/V Wizard is running. If you need to choose a connector besides the default VGA, press the 1-5 key and wait until you hear the beeps again before choosing another connector or resolution.
Keys for choosing a resolution:
Once you have a picture you can proceed to complete the A/V Wizard and resize your user interface to fit your screen, choose your audio outputs and so on.
If I had read more closely and caught your video card and the fact that it has has 2 dvi-out I would have also said to try switching connectors.
