When i attached a hdmi monitor, both my laptop and my desktop screens goes black. I have to manually turn it off and turn it back on to see it on my laptop screen.

Here is my video card NVIDIA Corporation G94 [GeForce 9700M GTS] and fedora says i am using the driver Gallium 0.4 on NV94.

Any Help?
