Hi

I've been trying to get my dual monitor setup working and even using the example xorg.conf from the nvidia settings utility I can't seem to be able to crack it, any help would be extremely appreciated.

Here's a copy of my xorg.conf:

Code:
Section "ServerLayout"

    Identifier     "Simple Layout"
    Screen         0 "Screen 1" 0 0
    InputDevice    "Mouse1" "CorePointer"
    InputDevice    "Keyboard1" "CoreKeyboard"
    Option         "AIGLX" "true"
EndSection

Section "ServerFlags"
    Option         "Xinerama" "0"
EndSection
