    FC3 and Dual monitors


    I am trying to get dual monitors, particularily spanning desktop, to work with FC3, and it seems to work fine, but when i restart my computer, it locks up on bootup. I know it is because of the dual monitors setup because of some testing. When I unplug the second monitor and boot it up, it boots up normally. Where would I even start to diagonose the problem?

    system logs -> video driver -> video card -> AGP/PCI Bus -> Motherboard -> SNAFU
    Their code will be beautiful, even if their desks are buried in 3 feet of crap. - esr

    I don't find where that is, I know where system logs is, but I do not see 'Video Driver"

    He's referring to the order in which you want to check your stuff. First, see if it's a system problem via your syslogs. Then, check/recompile the video driver. And so on.

    i figured it out, the graphical boot did not like my dual monitors, so i turned it off and now it boots fine, and faster, mind you.

    Awesome. What are the specs on your monitors?

    I run a 19" CRT on the left and a 17" widescreen LCD on the right (main). Once you go dual-head, you'll never go back.

    i have dual 17" crt's, and they are beautiful, well, the left one is, the right one is a scrounged at-least-it-works monitor. I asked fot a new 17" crt fot x-mas though, and i am going to set up another computer in my room with win98 on it for my low-end pc games i haven't been able to get to work 100% on FC3. I am still not sure where i am going to place the 3rd 17" monitor :-/ i might take the lcd monitor that i bought off my friend for 75 bucks (i am not using it because the max res is only 1024x76 and use it on the win98 machine and put the old crappy 17" back downstairs on my dads computer

    here is a screenshot btw:
