I have bought two ATI Radeon 4350 HD graphics cards and they both work well seperately. But only the first one will output most of the time. If I go to System -> Appearance -> Monitors it will only detect the monitor on the first graphics card.

I have check using hardinfo and the system has definitely detecting both of the graphics cards so I don't know why it isn't detecting the monitor.

I am running Maverick 64 bit

Hmm I am looking into those posts, they are very old. and there doesn't seem to be an xorg.conf file in /etc/X11. It won't let me paste the output of lspci here because there are too many characters, so it is here: pastebin.com/W30rQF6q Do you think Xinerama woulod be the best way to do it? –  Christophski Dec 2 '10 at 11:31
    
I'm not very experienced in this, I thought that those two threads could help you narrow down the options that you have. Sorry mate, hope someone out there could help you out. –  Saifallah Dec 2 '10 at 18:15
    
Thanks anyway. I think that Ubuntu was getting confused because of the two identical graphics cards. I've decided to just run two monitors off of the one graphics card instead. Not worth the hassle lol –  Christophski Dec 2 '10 at 23:49
    
Glad it worked out that way I guess =D –  Saifallah Dec 3 '10 at 15:58
