3 monitors in Mint 18.1 Serena

Postby gainadan » Sun Oct 15, 2017 11:19 am

Hi all,
I have GT218 [GeForce 210] card and on-board intel card, It is listed as Xeon E3-1200 v3/4th Gen Core on sudo lshw.
I have two monitors connected to the Nvidia card and one connected to the intel card.
On Nvidia-340 driver only two monitors are recognized while on Nouveau display driver all 3 apear listed. Unfortunately most of the time the 3rd monitor appear with 5 dots. Sometimes, with no particular reason the 3rd monitor works by itself. I tried changing the drivers, changing the settings of the monitors etc, the situation is the same. Sometimes works but is unpredictable. Anyway the mouse goes to the space of the 3rd monitor, I can even take screen-shots. I just cannot make the image appear. Any ideas?

The help is not needed anymore, I changed the video board and eliminated the need.
