Hello Everyone,
I have a strange issue that cannot seem to fix. I installed ubuntu using a regular computer monitor connected via vga. I also am using another monitor displaying via HDMI cable. If I was to boot the machine normally with only the HDMI cable in the OS will not boot. Recovery mode works via HDMI. The second I plug in the vga cable the os boots and the HDMI connected monitor seems to be showing up as a secondary display.

I've already tried changing the settings in system>preferences>display with no luck

Here is my xorg.conf:



Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "amdcccle Layout"
Screen 0 "amdcccle-Screen[1]-0" 0 0
EndSection

Section "Files"
EndSection

Section "Module"
Load "glx"
EndSection

Section "ServerFlags"
Option "Xinerama" "off"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "0-DFP2"
Option "VendorName" "ATI Proprietary Driver"
Option "ModelName" "Generic Autodetecting Monitor"
Option "DPMS" "true"
Option "PreferredMode" "1280x720"
Option "TargetRefresh" "60"
Option "Position" "0 0"
Option "Rotate" "normal"
Option "Disable" "false"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "0-CRT1"
Option "VendorName" "ATI Proprietary Driver"
Option "ModelName" "Generic Autodetecting Monitor"
Option "DPMS" "true"
Option "Disable" "true"
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "Default Device"
Driver "fglrx"
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "amdcccle-Device[1]-0"
Driver "fglrx"
Option "Monitor-CRT1" "0-CRT1"
Option "Monitor-DFP2" "0-DFP2"
BusID "PCI:1:5:0"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
DefaultDepth 24
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "amdcccle-Screen[1]-0"
Device "amdcccle-Device[1]-0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
EndSubSection
EndSection

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I think it has something to do with DFP2 and crt1

Yeah its really strange, As soon as I plug in the second monitor the ubuntu logo shows up and it boots normally.

It turns out as I was doing some more testing that the tv gets detected when connected through hdmi during boot when I disconnect it and connect it again. I hope someone has an answer to this.
