maybe it got shorted out or something... really weird. I can say though, that the video out can be a little sketch from time to time. I have always had better luck with the Mac OS X video controls over Apple's boot loader. Its only going to boot onto one screen, regardless of how many are attached. Maybe its still defaulting to the primary display; guessing that its extending and not mirroring...
