    Hello frank18,

    The ATI Radeon X1650 is a true legacy graphics card; I used to have a Radeon X850. Which driver are you using?
    How about showing, between the code symbols, the results of inxi -F
    Cheers,

    Hi my friend i tried to install xrandr it states in terminal; not a candidate to install .
    though i had it working on both displays with resolution 1280-1024 0.0HZ ,which 0.0HZ is weird since only resolutions under that show up on both displays with no other options and none work right even screw the graffics so much so i have to reboot,and the interesting thing is everytime i reboot it goes to a screen; ''see pics'' a log in with name and password witch i put in and it goes nowhere,then the only way i can go to my desktop is if i do Xubuntu GNU grub recovery mode,this Xubuntu 18.04 is giving me headaches with these 2 monitors
