Unhappy Asus GeforceFX 5600 VideoSuite (flicker and corruption)

Hello, i own an Asus GeforceFX 5600 VideoSuite, which has dual DVI ports and i have two SONY SDM-X73B TFT monitors connected to the two dvi ports.

The system has been running smoothly for 2 years now. Though a few days ago i started having problems:

When i try to run some game or application that uses hardware acceleration (even playing some movie). The first DVI port causes flickering and screen corruption.

The proper appears ONLY on the first DVI port AND ONLY when i'm running some 3D game/app or use some kind of hardware acceleration by playing a video.

The second DVI port doesn't have any problems and when i run plain applications everything looks ok.

I've also tested both WindowsXP Pro and Fedora Core 3 Linux. The proper is not software related since it happens on both operating systems.

In addition, i've switched the monitors/cables around to make sure this isn't a monitor/cable problem. Thus, i've confirmed it is a problem with the first DVI port.

Any help would be appriciated.

Thank you.
