2nd monitor detect at install but not on reboot

Hello All,

New user to the forums and new user to Zorin 16. i like it alot but what i do not like is losing my 2nd monitor. I had Zorin show up with both monitors on the install but after reboot it came up with one only. I read in some previous rorums posts that you might need some data from my terminal so here it is below.

I am using a Quad Core I7 machine with a SSD and a Hardrive in it. The first monitor (working) is DVI Acer monitor and the 2nd one is (non Working) is Acer but a Analog (paraell analog)

here is info from Terminal
drezin@PowerSSD:~$ uname -r
drezin@PowerSSD:~$ sudo lshw -c video
[sudo] password for drezin:

Any Help is greatly Apreciated.



I had run into a similar issue using Nvidia. It has to do with how Nvidia handles splitting between different connections. In order to resolve it, I bought two Display Port Cables and hooked both monitors up as Display Port.

My previous setup utilized the cables that I had: HDMI and VGA. Nvidia card did not like that...

Thanks for your help @Aravisian, I just went ahead and bought a new monitor. I figured the VGA monitor had to go. Thanks for your help again.
