Hello,

I don't know where to post this, I hope this is the correct place.

I'm trying to configure an HP workstation with 3 video outputs, using two NVIDIA cards. With two monitors I have no problems, but when I try to enable the third monitor (whether using nvidia-settings or modifying xorg.conf file) nothing happens. The third monitor has no signal.

I'm not so good at using linux, but I have done this before (with a Sun Microsystems Workstation) and it worked. I think that something else has to be done in order to enable the third monitor, but I haven't found it out yet

Any help would be really appreciated.

BTW,
The workstation has the following features:
HP xw9400
2 AMD Opteron processors
8 GB RAM
2 QUADRO FX 5600

I'm using the 180.22 nvidia driver version

Thanks.
