I'm relatively new to ubuntu. I have an HP with intel xeon and Nvidia Quadro FX380 GPU with dual monitors( Dell 19" and HP 24". I've been happily using it for the past 6 months but last week I upgraded from 12.04 to 14.04, when I rebooted it, the second monitor disappeared.
First off I go the display settings to realize that the detect button doesn't detect my second display.
I've tried to upgrade Nvidia proprietary driver but the software manager shows me (Since I can't post images...) :
NVIDIA Corporation: G96GL [Quadro FX 380 ]
This device is using the recommended driver
-Using NVIDIA binary driver - version 331.38 from nvidia-331 (proprietary, tested)
And finally when I access X server display configuration in nvidia settings. It tells me that their is just one display.
I tried to reinstall the driver for the GPU and it crashed, I had to reinstall ubuntu.
Please help, I'm desperate to get my second display back.
