Im pretty new to Manjaro and this is my first post here.
I have 2 Graphic Cards on my PC, 1 Nvidia 1650 Super and the other one is Nvidia GT 610. Im trying to have a dual-monitor setup. I have proprietary drivers installed for the 1650S (since it was the only card I was using for a few days). But after I added the GT 610, the display didn’t seem to work with it. There was no display on the 2nd monitor, and even when the gt610 was the only card being used it did not display anything. The card is getting detected along with 1650S when I checked in the “Hardware Configuration” section in KDE Settings
There appears to be some driver conflict too, as the GT 610 uses the 390xx drivers I believe?
I searched for related posts in the forum and Wiki but most of them seemed to be about nvidia-intel iGPU on laptops.
I will post any further information about the system if required.
My 2nd monitor has only VGA port(the DVI seems to be broken) and 1650 does not have VGA output, so I need the gt 610 for that. And I’m also planning to build a windows VM with PCIe passthrough for gaming In the near future, so I guess I’ll need it for that.
Is there no way I can get the gt610 to work?
I’m not worried about the Performance hit since I won’t be gaming or doing any GPU intensive task while on 2 monitors, just coding, browsing and stuff.
But what kind of problems will I get if I do this removing/installing of free and non free driver, and do you know any way to solve or avoid issues?
And also will it be better if install/uninstall and reboot with the new Nvidia driver and old 390xx driver instead of doing it with new Nvidia driver and Nouveau?
Will the older driver even work for the new card?
Thank you soo much for your time in answering these questions!!
