Default Display problem

I just bought a new computer from someone. It has sli (2 8600gts) at his house he had it running on 2 LCD monitors (1 per card) one might have been a TV (not sure). Everything worked fine. I took it home, plugged it into my Crt (nec multicynch fe771sb) and it would display the startup/bios and the windows loading screen, but after that my monitor display would click off and go on standby mode (no display at all).

SLi does support Multiple Monitors now. Just need to get the Beta Drivers for it. Version 180.

There is the topic that discusses this.
