xrandr: cannot find crtc for output VGA1

If you get one of these two messages it means you either have a bad connection or you forgot to turn off the screen that you used last (the second one only happens in my experience when use multiple types of screens).

xrandr: cannot find crtc for output VGA1
xrandr: cannot find crtc for output TV1
The easiest and quickest thing to do is to turn off the previous screen that you used like this.

xrandr --output TV1 --off
xrandr --output VGA1 --off
Then turn it back on like this.

xrandr --output VGA1 --mode 1024x768 --rate 60
xrandr --output TV1 --mode 1024x768 --rate 60
If that doesn't work you need to check connections. Running the xrandr command you should have an output like this. If you don't then it is confirmed you have a connection problem.

$ xrandr
