On of the two external monitors flickers on Ubuntu 14.04

Asked by Shashwat Kumar on 2014-11-07

I have two Dell E2211 monitors connnected to my Dell latitude E7240 having Ubuntu 14.04 with integrated graphics.
M1 : Connected via VGA to mini DP converter
M2: Connected via DVI to HDMI converter.

When I switch on in the morning both work properly for 2-3 hours. But with time M2 starts flickering and after sometimes go off. And sometimes suddenly starts working.
When M1 is unplugged, M2 works without any problem. What should I do to solve this problem.

Have you tried a different adapter. The one you have may be faulty

Can you help with this problem?
