Running 3 monitors with Intel HD4000 and Geforce 210

Hi guys,

Completely new to this but determined to get it working.

I installed Linux Debian 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.

Edit: I'm running Wheezy 7.3

Please help . Thank you.
