Hello everybody, I just spend several hours by googling how to set-up dual monitor my laptop. Have to say that I really don't where to start. Can anybody give me some advice or link on some good article with this topic. Thanks for any help. mirami Asus M6Va,CPU 2GHz, RAM 2GB, 64studio 32bit 2.1 pre11

LCD monitors aren't very hard to install, but if you haven't done this before, please search google and find a tutorial because setting up dual monitors can be a tricky task.

I will check this, but after hours of googling I think that new driver should make life much easer. mirami Asus M6Va,CPU 2GHz, RAM 2GB, 64studio 32bit 2.1 pre11

I posted some xorg.conf files which may help

Hi, I previously posted xorg.conf files for nVidia, Matrox and ATI cards. Back your xorg.conf file up first mind but my ATI entry may help you. Steve

Just info for others...

It is much easer with xrandr ... In my case it means wait for newer driver, radeon 6.6.3 dasn't support new features. mirami Asus M6Va,CPU 2GHz, RAM 2GB, 64studio 32bit 2.1 pre11
