View Full Version : [ubuntu] dual monitors suddenly gone

October 19th, 2009, 03:48 PM

I have been using ubuntu for 2 years now and am doing pretty well. I have used dual screens almost since the beginning and never had a problem with them (with nvidia cards).
A week ago however, suddenly out of nowhere, the second monitor stopped working.
As it is close to 9.10 and I didn't feel like looking into it, I decided to upgrade to 9.10 and see if that would fix the problem.
This actually worked and the second screen was back on.
The problem is, that I have exactly the same problem again now... Somehow, without me changing ANYTHING, the monitor just doesn't work anymore (no signal).
I can't find the second monitor in my nvidia-settings panel either, although when I go into the "System"->Preferences->Display of ubuntu, I see the resolution is still 3300x 1050 :(.

Does anyone know how I can resolve this issue ?
