maybe I wasn't clear: I can't get the 2 monitor together, but *or* the
LCR (at 1024x768, the maximum for my LCD) *or* the CRT (up to 1600x1200
on a SONY Trinitor Dell P1110, AFAIL the maximum for the external CRT).

If I try to get the 2 together:
- - with Fn+F8 I can't, I mean, the switch is LCD <> CRT, never LCD+CRT
and anyway I get a black band on top (the same as your)
- - with 'i810switch' I get the same error you already described

Well, I never tried the 'fbdev' driver on X. I use the general VESA fb
but for the console. So, it should be useuful to give it a try, just to
know if the switching problem is at BIOS level (as I think).

Thx, bye,
