    I've just set up a dual monitor display on xp, and both screens are working fine together except that the second monitor will not display any green. They are both running off of a 7800GT, using DVI to VGA converters. The second display is a reddish hue, and any green on it is diplayed as black. I don't have another VGA cable to test but I'm hoping it's just a dodgy cable. I can't try the cable on the first monitor as this monitor has a cable hard wired to it. Any ideas?

    I've just tried monitor 1 on the second graphics card output and it's gone red too, so the problem is with the graphics card not outputting green on the second output. Does anyone know why it's doing that?
