Hello. I’m attempting to run a multihead setup on my laptop (Elitebook 8540W) on some U2414H Displayport monitors from Dell. I have successfully installed the proprietary driver from Nvidia but can’t seem to get the Xorg setup correct.
I have followed the nvidia setup instructions. The first displayport monitor and my laptop monitor run fine in a dualscreen mode with xrandr. However, the third screen doesn’t come up no matter what I do although if I run xrandr I can see that its “connected”. When I try to connect it via “xrandr --output DP-6 --auto --right-of DP-5” I get an “CRTC not found” error.
Similarly, when I run nvidia-settings, that screen shows up as “connected” but when I try to enable it through a screen I get an error like “MetaMode 1 of Screen 0 has more than 2 active display devices.”
Anyways, I was wondering if someone from nvidia could help me with my Xsetup or point me toward an appropriate resources for running two monitors and laptop screen using the 880M.
