I have been struggling to get my two graphics cards to work. One is on the board and one is not.
I can change the BIOS on my MSI motherboard to "Internal, PCI, or PCI-E". Internal of course the one on the board becomes available. If I use PCI or PCI-E the card is used but the internal just doesn't show up at all on the system. With Windows installed "Internal" allows both to work.
Here is what I get when I do a
01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI RS780L [Radeon HD 3000] 02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI RV516 [Radeon X1300/X1550 Series] 02:00.1 Display controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI RV516 [Radeon X1300 Pro] (Secondary)
I'm not sure why the external, "X1300" is showing up twice.
I have tried to adjust the
xorg.conf file which of course is not found initially but I guess I can't get it configured correct as it just crashes the OS or "X" anyway. I have two LG FLATRON W2061TQ monitors.
Any ideas on how to get both cards working with extended displays?
