Default Radeon 5850 Issues (maybe)

I own an AMD system with a Sapphire Radeon 5850 card. Ive been experiencing problems with my monitor(s). I just picked up an ASUS VE247, and Ive had a VH242H for 6 months now. My original monitor (VH242H) was connected to my Radeon through HDMI, simultaneously my Xbox 360 was connected to the monitors DVI port. Using my computer was great, but while on my xbox the picture would cut out every 5-10 minutes... only for a few seconds then come back. NOW... i have both my new and old monitors connected to my PC, the new one (VE247) using HDMI and the old one (VH242H) using DVI, and my Xbox using my OLD monitors HDMI port. Now both monitors are cutting out.

I recently reset the 5850 back to factory defaults and unplugged the DVI thats coming from my Radeon to my old monitor. Everything seems to be ok. Ive read up and Ive seen everything from Drivers (which ive tried) to undercloking my card. Anyone got an ideas?
