Angry XFX Geforce GTX 295 (dual monitor problems)

Intel i7 920 2.67 GHZ
EVGA x58 motherboard
6GB corsair dominator RAM
XFX Geforce GTX 295 video card
Drivers: Tried them all, currently have 181.22 installed
Monitors:
19" Westinghouse LCD (using DVI hook-up)
17" Optiquest Q7 LCD (using VGA hook-up)

My problem is this: I am unable to use both monitors at the same time. When I do, the whole system freezes and I am unable to do anything (usually the main monitor(closest to mobo) goes out first, but more recently the second one has been going out). I've tried to disable multi-gpu, but to no avail. Originally, I was using my 36" Westinghouse LCD TV as a monitor (still didn't work in dual monitor mode), but it was brought to my attention I would probably have better quality game-play using a regular desktop monitor. Anyway, my question is how can I enable both monitors? If anyone needs more information please let me know.

Thank you.

Also, I have disable Windows Aero

Only one bump per 24 hours, please.

What's your power supply? Brand, wattage, etc.
