share|improve this question happens a lot my 15" monitor is detected (acer) and my 26" isn't (samsung) though, if i change the video cable..VGA,HDMIDVI etc... sometimes it gets recognized – Uri Herrera May 5 '11 at 3:25

I had the same problem when i updated to 11.04 beta. I have a 22'' Samsung monitor which was detected correctly up unti 10.10.

My problem was solved by creating an xorg.conf file manually:

sudo Xorg -configure

When i rebooted, the monitor was detected fine.
