Default Re: I can't set up dual monitors with TwinView/Xinerama/Separate X


The monitors have VGA out only, the Quadro has one DVI-I and two DisplayPorts. The monitor on the DVI-I works fine, the one on the DisplayPort doesn't.

I'm trying to attach a picture of the 'color static', hope it'll work. The picture is of the secondary monitor plugged into the DisplayPort.

I tried to tweak the Nvidia settings, but everything gives me the same output: the static on the secondary monitor. I tried TwinView, Xinerama, Separate X, the only difference is that with some settings I get a black second monitor, the primary always works. Help?

xrandr -q:

Screen 0: minimum 3840 x 1200, current 3840 x 1200, maximum 3840 x 1200
default connected 3840x1200+0+0 0mm x 0mm
3840x1200 50.0*
