Setting up dual monitor with Asus P8H67-M Pro / Sandy Bridge

Postby Lukillas on Mon Apr 22, 2013 12:25 pm

Hello there!
Yesterday I bought a new monitor and connected it to my PC, but I can't get it to work.
My computer has the following specifications:

Motherboard: Asus P8H67-M Pro
CPU: Intel Sandy Bridge i5 2500K with Intel HD3000 Graphics

I'm using the DVI and DSub connectors from motherboard, and my operating system is Linux Mint 13.
If I go to Control center -> Displays, I see only one monitor.

So.. what else should I do in order to get both screens working?

Thanks in advance!

Lukillas.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I've finally discovered what was wrong: the vga to dvi adapter. VGA is analogic, DVI is digital, so there is no chance for this to work. So I'll try to get a VGA to DVI converter, which hopefully will work ok.
Regards.
