ATI - 2 of 3 monitors will not work

Postby Wyattwic on Sat Mar 30, 2013 9:36 pm

Hello everyone!

I am having somewhat of an odd issue that I cant seem to find a resolution to.

I currently have two ATI graphics cards, one card is running my primary monitor and the second monitor is running an additional two monitors.

My issue is that I am unable to activate my second and third monitors on the second graphic card. Any instructions would be useful.

Here is the device information for the graphics cards direct from lshw.

Primary graphics card is a Radeon HD 6950. Unit is functioning and displays properly with open source and properitary drivers. The card only provides for monitor one.
Secondary graphics card is a Radeon HD 6800. Unit does not function on any driver but is listed in lspci. This card provides for monitor two and three.

Any tips would be great.

After a good amount of tinkering with things I managed to break everything.

I have just reinstalled the OS and recovered my documents but I am still without a solution to this issue.

Any help would be appricated.
