fired video card?
I have a Matrox G00 dual headed card, and it worked like a charm until my power supply overheaded and almost caught fire. As a result I plugged my harddrive (with a kernel compiled for a i586) into a PII computer along with my video card. LInux booted fine my my hd wasnt damaged at all and both my monitors displayed the console fine. I changed the location of my card's bus in xorg.conf and fired up X. One monitor (#1) works and #2 is all garbled, showing stuff from #1 and #2. Here is some relavant info:

how do you expect xorg to tell the difference between BusID "PCI:2:0:0" and BusID "PCI:2:0:0"?

If the card worked one day and doesn't now, I'd have to say that it's dead. I don't know of any other things you can try except maybe another computer?"Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so."
