Centos 8 stream dual VGA cards

Post by amirwe81 » 2022/11/09 20:26:22

Hello all,

I have an HP Pavilion dk15 with two graphics cards VGA and NVIDIA.
lspci -nn | grep -i vga
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation CoffeeLake-H GT2 [UHD Graphics 630] [8086:3e9b]
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation GP107M [GeForce GTX 1050 Mobile] [10de:1c8d] (rev a1)

after installing the nvidia drivers the main laptop display does not work for x-windows.
I can see only on the external display when I connect the hdmi cable .

Please help.
Thanks

Thanks, It was helpful.

However, now I can only switch between the laptop screen and the external screen by editing the xorg.conf
What can be added in the file xorg.conf:
