Re: [Parts Check] nvidia and ati card in the same box

Got a system over here with an active intel gpu, and nvidia gpu on different monitors. I did encounter a weird effect when I installed the latest nvidia drivers, the screens went black, including the one on the other gpu, and they never came back at all. I let the hdd stop for a while, and pressed the power button to make it shutdown. After it came back up it showed they were installed possibly waiting for a restart, otherwise finished, but it seems like nvidias refresh method was the problem.

Ubuntu didn't fare as well as windows with multiple monitors on different cards, changing the resolution caused it to freeze, and even worse I couldn't change the resolution higher than garbage after installing the proprietary nvidia drivers.
