CRT monitor won't come on
1 Attachment(s)
I have a geforce TI4400 card with One Samsung 191T LCD monitor connected.
Everything works fine except the CRT monitor goes blank when i start X windows.
The LCD monitor is working great but it would be nice to have the CRT monitor too.

Have tried mixing different refresh rates but nothing seems to work. any ideas?

Reading your XF86Config I see two things that are differnt to mine XF86Config.
1) I think twinview needs "SecondMonitorxxxx" parameter.
2) "Metamodes" parameter must be like "1024x786,1024x786@800x600" ore "1024x786,1024x786 ; 800x600,800x600; xxx,xxx"
3) Have a look at /var/log/XFree.xx.log - the starting log of the X server

Attatched the Xfree logfile. Please take a look at that one.

in the log file there is an error message
The connected Moniotr string isn't correct. I don't use this option and erverythings ok. So make a # in front of this line or change to
"ConnectedMonitors" "CRT,CRT"

but if i write Connected Monitor "CRT,DFT" then it goes blank when i exit xwindows.

for LCD you must use "CRT,DFP" (Digital Flat Panel) not DFT !!

type error from my side it says ",DFP" and i i type "CRT,DFP" i get the bug that nvida has not yet removed som the driver, then the screen goes black when i exit X windows. Nvida is aware of that problem ,but has not fixed it yet.
