Linux Mint 12 fails to detect second monitor


I have two monitors on one computer. They both work fine in xp, but in linux mint 12 the second doesn't work. I have an nVidia card, but I installed the proprietary drivers. Both monitors are connected via DVI. switching cables doesn't work

I think nvidia script accommodates passing an option as it runs to compile a new kernel, try run the nvidiaxxxx.sh --help. If not then probably your BIOS setting needs to enable multiple monitors, check that first.

Goodluck.
