I have gone through installing versions 14, 15 and 16. However, none of the versions seem to solve the issue of getting my 2nd monitor to display. When I go to additional drivers I only have an option selected for *Using processor microcode firmware for Intel CPU's from Intel microcode (proprietary).
My second monitor appears as "Unknown device" in the display application. I've tried the other Q/A posted with no luck including purging and updating drivers. I am using a AMD/ATI RV730XT [Radeon HD 4670] Graphics card. Monitor is connected through VGA and DVI port. An interesting thing is when my computer boots up, the Bios and Grub display using both monitors. It isn't until Ubuntu boots that my second monitor turns off. If I disconnected one monitor the other monitor will turn on so I know it can see the other device and use it.
The dual monitors worked for all versions of Windows, but I really don't want to use Windows anymore. I'm open to even buying a different graphics card if that is what I need to do. Will someone please help? Thanks in advance.
--Update to Question-- Okay, so guessing my graphics card just isn't supported for dual monitors in Ubuntu 16.xx. I'm currently using [Radeon HD 4670]. Can someone tell me what graphics cards ARE supported in Ubuntu 16.xx (DUAL MONITOR ONLY)? Has anyone actually got dual monitors working???
