23" display not working on dual 2ghz g5...

OK, this is a weird one: dual 2 ghz g5, geforce fx 5200 (64mb), 23" aluminum studio display. this display will not work on this computer. the power light comes on, but the display will not turn on and system profiler does not even see that there is a monitor plugged in, no matter which port it's plugged into. the card will work with a crt display in either port (but i've just been told that it will not work with 2 crts, haven't confirmed this yet, so don't let it throw you off). the 23" display works fine with a different g5 with a radeon 9600xt (ATY,RV360 128mb).

i'm pretty confused by this one. is there a chance that somehow the monitor is not getting enough power from the wall? (the two computers are in different locations) any help would be appreciated.
