While care is taken by your fellow user to ensure that everything will work, it is more often than not likely the case.Things do go wrong as you try to optimize your graphics driver and monitors.So long as you can enable the second monitor you have an easier chance of getting the second monitor working.(Note: Different video manufactures have different ways of enabling the second monitors and detailed information will be presented for each proprietary driver at some later date here.) If your computer does not boot when you have upgraded drivers, press escape at the GRUB bootloader, then choose "recovery mode" for your latest kernel.That way the commands will be in your terminal history.You can then simply press up arrow on your keyboard to recover the key combinations.
This tutorial solved the problem but my sequence was different: 1. And there will be the constant fear of updates breaking Nvidia or possibly somehow reactivating Nouveau.Nouveau is compiled into the kernel and while running isn't compatible with the proprietary Nvidia drivers.Stopping the module after the system boots has proven futile. The nvidia-xconfig commnd was not found and it is not in the package manager. I've had troubles with an MSI MS-1632 Notebook with Mobile AMD Sempron Processor 3500 and C51 graphics (Ge Force Go 6100) fading to black and locking up randomly (mouse would move but nothing would happen). Alt Ctrl Backspace works instead of Alt Ctrl Print K.Often if your running CRT monitors you find that the video card only seems to have options to display in low resolution mode.The trick to this is being able to edit the file in low resolution mode. Either in one of the terminal text editors or in the GUI (graphical user interface).It is a good idea to find out maximum resolution, vertical and horizontal sync ranges and have them close at hand for both the monitor and video card.
