View Full Version : [ubuntu] No DVI video on LCD tv with Geforce 9800 PCIe card

I've just put together a computer with a

$ lspci | grep nvidia -i
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G92 [GeForce 9800 GT] (rev a2)
I've enabled the hardware driver support and when I open "nvidia-settings" with a monitor plugged into the VGA port and LCD tv (VIZIO) plugged in from the DVI -> HDMI port I only see the one VGA monitor. The tv isn't displayed whatsoever.

After clicking "detect displays" this is all I get:


the weird thing is it was working at first, and then I upgraded the distro and added compiz (possibly did a bunch of other things), restarted and now nothing.

thanks in advance for any advice
