Unhappy Display Issues


Hi, all I am very new to Linux. The issue I am having is I am running RHEL 5 and am trying to display a graphic on 4 separate monitors and for some reason one of my display ports keeps shutting the monitor off. It is the same display port evertime. The way I understand it is that RHEL sends a signal to the monitor and is expecting a return signal and if it doesn't get that signal it wont display anything on that monitor. Is there anyway to set this configuration to always send a signal no matter what?

jenkins
your first stop with RedHat should be the red hat web site
You ARE paying for the required license to use RHEL5
log in to the red hat web site with the username and pass you set up when you bought the license
and search the knowledge base
https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/search

and / or
https://access.redhat.com/support/cases/list

and the red hat product documentation
https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/...erprise_Linux/
the older RHEL 5 is down on the page a bit
