    Dual monitor troubleshooting

    Hi there,

    I recently bought a laptop : ASUS N56JR-S4029H which has Nvidia GeForce GTX 760M
    It seems that Kali 1.9/1.8/1.7 have a problem to manage the graphic card.

    First I need to update-pciids to display the card in lspci. Then, it seems that Kali doesn't detect the external monitor.
    I tried with nouveau driver, Kali repository Nvidia driver and Official Nvidia driver. I also tried a lot of stuff found on Internet including the Kali official documentation.
    I tried Bumblebee, Pyrit and Cuda but all failed, the monitor doesn't even appear in the settings panel.
    The only way to make it work is Xubuntu, wich is not a good choice for me...

    I have another very old Toshiba Satellite with a Nvidia card and everything work perfectly...

    Thanks for any help. Have a nice day guys.

    Here are my infos :
