I have the same problem on f27 and f28 beta

My graphinc card is a geforce GTX 260

My first monitor is a viewsonic vp2250wb My second monitor is a belinea 24 o.display

Fedora don't work in dual monitor mode. During bootstrap works first monitor and the second is dark. When start login into gnome works second monitor and the first turn into dark.

From gnome admin panel I can see both to monitor, but there is no way to use the second due to a dark (stanby) status that didn't wake up...

Thank you very much

Try the solution below. Another tidbit of advice is to slightly upgrade that GPU if you have the money. It's really old and weak; a little bit of money can you get a much better GPU. Look into it :)

I have just experienced the same error with other hardware configuration, but I managed to solve it. I ha to change the type of the monitor connection cable. I used a DVI connection port and I had the same problems you had. Then I bought a traditional VGA cable, changed the DVI and all problems were gone. I think that might be the solution for you too. Try it!
