Default weird display problem

ive got a 20" widescreen viewsonic tft monitor. Its great but recently ive been having a problem. I orginally had a 6600gt connected through a dvi cable, but when the computer crashes (its done this a couple of times recently) i have to turn off at the mains and restart, but the monitor says no signal. Its fine when restarting normally. It does the same with the vga cable. Now ive put a msi 7800GTX in there instead and its doing exactly the same thing.

any ideas what im doing wrong?

AMD x2 5000+ black edition at 3.3GHZ zalman cnps 9700-NT
Gigabyte GA-M57SLI-S4 motherboard
3072mb: OCZ ddr800 gold
2x 7800GTX in SLI for 20" viewsonic
OCZ 600watt power supply - plug for my gfs site

MacBook 2.2GHz Santa Rosa | 120GB HDD | 4GB ram
Intel C2D E6300 @ 3.2GHz | 4GB ram | 880GB total HDD space | Gigabyte P965-DS3 | eVGA 8800GTS 640mb | Corsair HX 520 | Audigy 2 ZS platnium | Antec 900
