Default CRT monitor won't come on

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

Hello

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"

regards Christoph

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