View Full Version : [ubuntu] External monitor all of a sudden stopped working (ati x300 // hardy heron)

Not sure what happened. Had dual monitors working (compiz wasn't). Got compiz working. Yippee!

Then all of a sudden, my external monitor just stopped coming on when booting up. In the ATI Catalyst CC, the "2" monitor is greyed out.

output of xrandr -q:

Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1400 x 1050, maximum 2800 x 1050

output of aticonfig --query-monitor

I can post the xorg.conf if needed.

Anyone else have this happen? What other settings are there to look at?
