Default Re: Triplehead config problem - one monitor stays black

Hi Bernhard (are you german?),

first thanks for your help. I was busy last weeks but at least managed to get hold of another FX3400, so I could test having two equal cards in the system.

Does not work
Excactly the same behavior with two FX3400. I setup everything in the nvidia-settings, restart X and got only two screens. Running nvidia-settings again gives me (see screenshot) one monitor disabled. NO ERROR OR WARNING IN THE LOGFILE regarding this.

I am getting mad. What's wrong with me?

Btw., how does SLI come into multimonitor configs? I could try to build some SLI, since the FX3400 are SLI capable and also my workstation (HP xw9400).

If it's urgent, you may also try a different solution that gets rid of the
annoying re-draw events when moving windows across screen boundaries
and will even allow you to run a composition WM and :
I don't understand how this fits into my problem. I would love re-draw events if I only get the third monitor to work


In this case, you could triple your productivity (from the current state)
with the following variant:
Wow!! That's nice!
But for working/coding I found for me 3 monitors as the maximum, one main in the middle and the outer two for output/documentation

Best regards
