2. Then add this option to the device section of your /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

Option "ConnectedMonitor" "DFP"
Reboot, and everything should be alright...


I've tried your method, but no success
I've a Nvidia Geforce 8600 GT and an Asus mother board P5N-E SLI.

I haven't had this problem on Windows yet, but I use it very rarely...

Any other suggestions? Thanks!
