Re: External monitor issues
I seem to be having similar problems in F15 with an external monitor. I can get it working, but it's very temperamental. Basically, I just want to work off the external monitor and turn off the laptop monitor. That's how I left the settings when I shut down yesterday. But today more problems.
Yesterday, I had to configure the Display settings (System Settings > Display) on numerous occasions, with the computer freezing or both monitors going black before things finally seemed to work.
When I started up today, both my laptop monitor and the external monitor were black. On a second attempt, they were full of coloured fuzz.
Can anyone help me with this? I am no linux expert.
I have a Thinkpad E420
