    how to activate graphic cards without monitor?

    Hi, I wonder is there any way to activate the graphic cards without a monitor?
    It seems in xorg.conf, a "Device" had to be referenced by a "Screen" to have it activated.

    I wonder is there any other way to activate a graphic cards without monitor connected to it?

    Any suggestion would be very appreciated!!!!

    With nvidia cards (except tesla) you must have an attached monitor or forced monitor/x screen.

    To force a non-existent monitor use can use the following in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file

    Option "ConnectedMonitor" "VGA"
    you'll need the screen & device sections..

    Tesla & Quadra can use
    Option "UseDisplayDevice" "none"

    You can do the same from terminal cmd using nvidia-settings with cmd options..
