Problem with Dual display in Redhat Enterprise linux WS release 3


The dual display was working before. All of a sudden only a monitor comes on. I changed VGA cable of the troubled monitor but single display persist. During system start up, both monitors comes on. The starting process and checking activities on the OS comes up on both monitors. Upon logon, only one monitor comes up.

Below is the /etc/X11/xorg.conf and a command lspci -v

Ok...what do you think we can tell you from this?

If it WAS working and now it ISN'T, then something changed, or a piece of hardware has broken. Not much else it could be....so, what did you change, and have you tried a different monitor? And since you're using RHEL, have you contacted RHEL support?

No new Hardware was added and nothing was broken. No hardware change.I have changed monitor and VGA cable, yet no solution.
Please find attached the settings for nvidia. I have not contacted Redhat support. I do not know if we have support.

Again, if it WAS working and now it ISN'T...then SOMETHING HAS CHANGED.

Showing the setting as they ARE, doesn't tell us anything about what it WAS. If you are 100% certain that ALL the hardware (card, cables, and monitors) are working, then there has been a software change. You can follow the VERY well documented nVidia procedures for doing dual-display, either using Twinview or Xinerama, and get it working again, or restore a copy of your xorg.conf file from backups.

Go to http://www.nvidia.com, and check out their documentation.
