Running 3 monitors with Intel HD4000 and Geforce 210
 
Hi guys. I already put this in the Newbie section but I think this section might be more appropriate so mods please feel free to delete the other thread if I have broken some rules.

I installed Debian Wheezy 7.3 on my PC. Specs are:

Intel 3570k (HD4000 GPU)
Asrock Z77 Extreme 4
Nvidia Geforce 210 PCI-E GPU

So the Geforce 210 GPU is detected. I have my 27" and 24" screen attached to it. I have another 24" screen attached to my onboard Intel HD4000 card (which is part of the 3570k CPU I believe.

The 2 displays attached to the GeForce 210 work fine. There's a bit of lagging when dragging windows around real fast but I can get to sorting that out later.

Problem is there is no display on the screen attached to the Intel card.

Both cards are detected in lspci.

00:02.0 Display controller: Intel Corporation Xeon E3-1200 v2/3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller (rev 09)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GT218 [GeForce 210] (rev a2)

I tried setting the onboard card as the preferred card in the BIOS and tried to boot using it but all I get is a blank screen after GRUB.

This setup works fine in Windows, no issues. I"m thinking I need to configure the x.conf file or something but I have NFI what to do.

Please help . Thank you.

Is your Nvidia Geforce 210 PCI-E GPU a newly installed card?

If so a new card will over-ride the onboard card.

To view your xorg.conf you can open it with your text editor to view it.
Look under the section "Device" and it should show you what driver is being used and what it's set to.
Code:

cat /etc/X11xorg.conf

I'm thinking that's because your Geforce 210 is being seen first maybe (I'm not 100% sure:sorry)
I'd wait for a more experienced hardware/graphics member to chime in.

In my case when I installed a new graphics card it automatically was set to PCIe in the BIOS.
And the new card took over my on-board Radeon 3100--

Looked up your mobo in case you or anyone needs the spec's-
