i never have supplied anything more than the 5 Volts from the arduino board 5 V outlet, so i think that the servose are fine. They are working perfectly when i power the arduino board with the USB.

regarding regulator - i have connected both servos directly on pins 9 and 10 of the arduino uno board.

Are you saying you powered the servos from the Arduino's 5V regulator?
Are these special low current servos?

You shouldn't ever run servos from the Arduino's regulator; it is only rated at 500mA.
