[SOLVED] Can't get dual monitor setup working using nvidia drivers.

I've been using a dual monitor setup using the nouveau drivers for a while. This works fine.
After switching to the proprietary nvidia drivers one of my monitors (DVI-I-0) remains off.

$ xranrd
Screen 0: minimum 8 x 8, current 1440 x 900, maximum 8192 x 8192
DVI-I-0 connected primary (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
   1280x1024     60.02 +  75.02  
   1024x768      75.03    70.07    60.00  
   800x600       75.00    72.19    60.32    56.25  
   640x480       75.00    72.81    59.94  
VGA-0 connected 1440x900+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 408mm x 255mm
   1440x900      59.89*+  74.98  
   1280x1024     76.00    75.02    70.00    60.02  
   1280x720      60.00  
   1152x864      75.00  
   1024x768      75.03    70.07    60.00  
   800x600       75.00    72.19    60.32    56.25  
   640x480       75.00    72.81    59.94  
DVI-I-1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
HDMI-0 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)

This is how I normally enable the setup:

xrandr --output DVI-I-0 --right-of VGA-0

I'm at a loss about what could be wrong. Can anybody provide some hints?
Thanks!

Can you enable it through nvidia-settings?

I enabled it through nvidia-settings, saved the settings and restarted X without avail.
The screen does show up in nvidia-settings now, but still doesn't receive a signal.

see here and here.

Hmm, after juggling the DVI connector the monitor suddenly started working. The cable must be damaged. Strange that it did work with nouveau.
Thanks anyway smile
