Here are the specs on my desktop computer:
I5 processor 24 GB Ram 256GB SSD NVIDIA GTX Titan X
I just migrated this system over from Windows 7 64 bit to Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS 64 bit, to match my laptop. This issue is that I have 3 monitors connected to my desktop and every time I click on Screen Display in System Settings the System Settings windows just closes. The first couple of times it gave me a crash error and the window just started to close. I have clicked on other items in the System Settings window and they open fine, it is just this that is giving me issues.
I tried changing the driver under Additional Drivers in the Software & Updates window from "Using X.Org..." to "Using NVIDIA binary driver..." (the one that said tested at the end of it) and when I rebooted the computer all 3 screens went to sleep and I was unable to do anything with them (I was able to get into safe graphics mode and change it back). I also tried downloading the Linux driver 64 bit version from the NVIDIA site itself, but that seemed to save a .run file and I tried to run it in a terminal window with no luck, not sure what to do with it.
I also have installed the NVIDIA X Server Settings, but do not seem to see anything in there regarding my card or settings. The only two items listed on the left hand side are:
"Application Profiles" "nvidia-settings Configuration"
As well I installed xfce4-display-settings and ran xfce4-display-settings -m and in there changed my screen settings, in the window that opened, to the way that I wanted, but it did not seem to make any difference.
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. :)
