I have two graphics cards installed, both nVidia. a GeForce 9600 and a GeForce 6200 TurboCache. I'd like to run my two monitors from the DVI port on each card.
The 9600 is working fine, the 6200 is not.
Running lspci shows the both cards in place.
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G94 [GeForce 9600 GT] (rev a1) 06:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV44 [GeForce 6200 TurboCache(TM)] (rev a1)
Running xrandr shows the following:
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1920 x 1200, maximum 8192 x 8192 DVI-I-1 connected 1920x1200+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 519mm x 324mm 1920x1200 60.0*+ 1600x1200 60.0 1680x1050 60.0 1280x1024 75.0 60.0 1152x864 75.0 1024x768 75.1 60.0 800x600 75.0 60.3 640x480 75.0 60.0 720x400 70.1 VGA-1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) HDMI-1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
These are the ports that relate to the 9600 card. Can anyone help me with getting the 6200 card recognised?
I currently do NOT have additional nVidia drivers installed. I tried running with "NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver (version current)[Recommended]" installed, but things got worse. My monitor changed from Dell 24" to 'unknown' in display settings and the list of ports disappeared from xrandr.
Finally, this PC is on a dual boot with Win7 under which both cards and monitors work fine, so I know the hardware is good.
