View Full Version : [ubuntu] Dual Monitor issue in 10.04

Hi guys.

This is probably not the right sub forum... anywho...

I decided to plug in an old 17" Dell Monitor into my Toshiba Potege M300 via VGA cable.

When I startup my laptop screen is fails, goes blank and my Dell screen flickers.

I manage to login with the Dell Monitor, at this stage I access the "Monitors" application and reapply the laptop and Dell monitor settings to 1024 x 768, 85 Hz and 1024 x 768, 75 Hz respectively. EVERYTHING THEN WORKS PERFECTLY until I startup again.

Is there something wrong with my configuration? How can I have the settings stick when Ubuntu boots? Why does this happen?

Thanks in advance. My graphics card is intel 855GM.
