Debian Hardware :: System Does Not Recognize External Monitor Via HDMI

Jun 30, 2014

Ok so I just installed Debian 7.5 on my laptop and encountered several problems.

First off was the problem with GNOME 3, GNOME 3 failed to load.

Second problem was that the system does not recognize an external monitor via hdmi. Via VGA I do not know do not have a cable to try it out.

Third problem was that my wireless was no recognized.

Dell Inspiron 5537 Laptop
wireless: Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9565 Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01)
Graphics card: VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09) from the 4xxx series
System: 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.57-3+deb7u2 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Before I had Fedora, but only cuz all the devices were recognized by default, for a while now I wanted to switch over to Debian but as I came to relize my hardware for some reason is not working.

Debian Hardware :: External Monitor As The Main Monitor For A Laptop

Sep 22, 2010

I recently installed Debian, using the amd64 Network Install .iso. I'm using XFCE4 as my desktop environment, and everything is working well... on my laptop's screen.

My desired setup is to have my laptop sitting on a well-ventilated shelf, closed, and to have an external monitor be my main monitor. I want this because I'm using my laptop as my "home" computer, so it never moves, and I don't like the keyboard/trackpad. My laptop has a VGA output, and I can get my desired setup on my Windows partition (not stating a preference ; just that the hardware CAN do what I want it to).

I've been working my way around the Internet for a few days, now, and I've got the commercial NVIDIA driver installed. If I run sudo nvidia-config --twinview I can get my external monitor to be part of the display, which is great, but it's part of a dual-screen monitor setup, which is not what I want at all, because (a) XFCE's multiple virtual desktops are good enough for me and (b) my graphics card is integrated, and I'm trying to squeeze every drop of performance out of my laptop that I can (1 gig of RAM; the less that my graphics card eats into it, the better). Plus, it'd be annoying to accidentally drop something on my laptop's screen, and then have to dig it out of the shelf in order to undo it. I'm not saying that I'm consistently clumsy, but I'd eventually end up doing it.

Debian :: Monitor Not Detected Unless Connected With HDMI

Nov 13, 2015

I noticed that Debian 8 has a significant bug related to detecting presence of display(s). Today, I woke my computer from sleep while the LCD monitor was unplugged from power (the monitor is connected via DVI) then I powered the monitor but nothing was displayed. Next, I connected another monitor via HDMI and both screens started working. However after disconnecting HDMI cable from the second monitor the first one with DVI stopped showing anything. The conclusion of this situation is that HDMI monitor must be connected all the time.

I thought that this is caused by graphics driver, but I experienced the problem on different machines, one with nvidia driver and DVI, and the second with default free driver and DisplayPort.

I just checked that this is related to KDE. After switching to console using ctrl+alt+f1 the screen turns on, but when I am going back via ctrl+alt+f7 the screen disappears.

Debian Hardware :: Monitor Not Detected On HDMI

Aug 16, 2015

Setup:

I'm using i386 Jessie Debian, have an i7 Intel processor and Gtx 745 4gb NVidia GPU.

I am running with nomodeset due to blurring issue but issue occured without nomodeset too.

Problem:

When I start Debian with just a monitor in the HDMI slot it doesn't recognize the monitor and keeps the monitor at 1024x768.

When I start Debian with monitor in both DVI and HDMI slot it only activates the DVI monitor (with proper resolution). PC has no VGA I have no DP cable.

xrandr:
xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default
Screen 0: minimum 640 x 480, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 1920 x 1080
default connected primary 1920x1080+0+0 0mm x 0mm

1280x1024 0.00
1024x768 0.00
800x600 0.00
640x480 0.00

Which is my dvi monitor, no other screens detected. Is there any way to get the HDMI to run properly?

Debian Hardware :: Monitor Working With VGA But Not With HDMI / DVI

Jan 13, 2016

My monitor (Dell U2412M) has a VGA port, a display port and a DVI port. I can connect it to my laptop with VGA, no problem, but I'd rather use one of the other ports. I have a HDMI-to-DVI cable, so I tried that. That didn't work with my laptop, so I tested this HDMI-to-DVI cable with my raspberry pi, and that works perfectly. So, the problem is probably not the cable and not the DVI port on the monitor.

What happens when I plug the HDMI-to-DVI cable into my laptop is a bit weird. It's not a blank screen or anything, but part of the messages I see during boot. The last lines on the screen (the others relate to stuff that is probably not relevant for this issue), are these:

Code:
Select all[   10.823974] [drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: 0x7232: i2c wr fail: -6
[   10.825122] [drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: 0x7244: i2c wr fail: -6
[   11.487584] [drm:intel_dsm_platform_mux_info] *ERROR* MUX INFO call failed

I have had quite a bit of trouble with my GPU on this laptop, and as far as I can tell, the laptop does not use the nvidia card but rather has defaulted to the on board intel chip. Could these issues be connected?

Debian Multimedia :: Keep Laptop Screen Lit When Plugging In HDMI Monitor

May 7, 2015

Where the script is for Gnome 3. When I plug the HDMI cable, the desktop expands to include both, but disables the backlight on the laptop monitor. I have to restart gdm3 or the laptop for the brightness control to bring it back up. First, why would it turn brightness to 0, and how do I change the default of that so it stops. I plug and unplug the HDMI regualarly while I wait for a new desktop and the laptop has to pull double duty.

I just switched from Ubuntu 14.10. It never blacked out a screen on plug in or removing. That means that there must be some way to do it, however, it used Unity and this is Gnome 3.

I installed KDE. It works as well. I will use it for now, but would like to get Gnome 3 to work. My default is gdm but I think I saw I can switch it to kdm.

Ubuntu :: System Lagging When Connecting External Monitor?

Dec 31, 2010

Just installed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS netbook edition and everything goes well except for one thing.

When I connect my lcd monitor to the vga port the system lags. If I listen to music and browse web pages at the same time, the sound skip and when the page stop loading, music is ok. Also, the mouse skip. If I do circle with it on the desktop without doing anything else, it will skip.

The strange thing if I remove the external monitor and reboot the system everything comes back to normal.

I had Intrepid Ibex for 2 years without any problems. I remember a post saying that powernowd should be disable, but can't find the process from the startup list anymore.

Debian Hardware :: External Monitor Not Detected

My system can't seem to detect the external monitor that I've plugged into my laptop using and HDMI cable. The monitor works when I'm booted into Windows so I know that it isn't a problem with the monitor or the cable.

Debian Multimedia :: Cannot Set External Monitor To Higher Resolutions

Jul 8, 2011

I recently got a new external monitor for my laptop, and connected them by VGA. This is what 'xrandr' tells me:

Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1440 x 900, maximum 4096 x 4096
LVDS1 connected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
1280x800 60.0 +
1024x768 60.0
800x600 60.3 56.2
640x480 59.9
VGA1 connected 1440x900+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 510mm x 290mm
1920x1080 60.0 +
1600x1200 60.0
1680x1050 60.0
1280x1024 75.0 60.0
1440x900 75.0 59.9*
1280x960 60.0
1280x800 59.8
1152x864 75.0
1024x768 75.1 70.1 60.0
832x624 74.6
800x600 72.2 75.0 60.3 56.2
640x480 72.8 75.0 66.7 60.0
720x400 70.1

However when I try to change to some of the higher resolutions, such as 1920x1080, all I get is a corrupted and flickering image. As indicated above, I am currently on 1440x900@59.9h,z but for some reason 1440x900@75hz doesn't work. The same seems to be true for 1280x1024. The three resolutions above that all cannot be selected properly. I tried setting the resolution to maximum in Windows XP and it worked, and my video games console can set it to 1080p, so I don't think there is anything wrong with the monitor. Is there anything I can do or is this some kind of bug or limitation of the graphics driver or something? The graphics chipset of the laptop is an Intel 945GM, which I believe should be capable of displaying 1920x1080. I am running debian unstable with what seems to be the most up to date version of xserver-xorg-video-intel.

Debian Multimedia :: NVidia Driver Not Working With External Monitor?

Mar 15, 2010

I have a Dell XPS M1330, which has a GeForce 8400M GS GPU. The binary (sigh) nVidia driver installed is version 190.53 (installed by sgfxi). This is working well: glxgears gives me about 2600 FPS and compiz is happy.An old Philips 170B is attached by VGA cable. I was looking to set up a method of switching resolution upon connecting to the monitor when working at the desk, since I don't like the 1280x800 resolution of the laptop.

nfortunately, I can't get any output on the external monitor. It does work under Ubuntu, which installed the 180 series binary driver. (Going to an earlier driver is an option, but I want to understand the problem.) Bottom line, I want to work under Debian.As far as I know, nVidia's proprietary driver doesn't support xrandr. At any rate, with he external 170B monitor attached and turned on, I get the following:$ xrandr -qScreen 0: minimum 320 x 175, current 1280 x 800, maximum 1280 x 800default connected 1280x800+0+0 0mm x 0mm

Debian Hardware :: Unable To Use External Monitor Through Edock And Displayport

I'm using Jessie 8.3 on Dell laptop Latitude E7240.

Now when I plug the laptop in the Dell eDock docking station, external monitor connected through DisplayPort and it is detected (according to xrandr output).

BUT nothing shows on the monitor (it stays black) and I get errors repeating in the kernel log:

Debian Hardware :: Laptop Screen Goes Blank With External Monitor

Mar 28, 2016

I am running Debian 8.3, and I'm running Gnome 3.14.1.I have an external monitor plugged in with HDMI, and while Linux is loading both screens are on duplicate. Once the GUI kicks in, only the external screen works, so I have to enter my password blindly. Then, I open a terminal and run

Code: Select allsudo echo 950 > /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness

and the laptop screen turns back on.

I'm wondering: Is there a way to streamline this so that it happens on boot, but after GNOME loads?Or: Is there a better method to solve this?

Debian Configuration :: Copying Video Setup From Ubuntu - External Monitor

Oct 15, 2015

My laptop has a dual boot Debian + Ubuntu installation.

In particular I am using Debian 8.0 with stock kernel 3.16.0-4 (or equally 4.1.10 custom compiled, I tested it and it does not make any difference for the subject of this post).

Ubuntu is 14.10, with stock kernel 3.19.0-15.

In both installations I have nvidia nouveau drivers and intel integrated graphics drivers installed and loaded. This is the default for both installations.

In both installations I have xorg automatically configured (no xorg.conf file present in /etc/X11). In both systems the content of /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d is the same for what moitors are concerned (differences in mice and trackpad entries).

Unfortunately, the video configuration in Ubuntu 14.10 works out of the box. In particular I can plug in an external monitor/projector and it will fire-up the nvidia card (nouveau drivers) to power that monitor.

Debian 8.0 on the other hand does not even detect the external monitor.

I don't know where to start to solve the problems.

The hardware is as follows: the laptop (lenovo W530) features both an Intel integrated graphics card and an Nvidia K1000M. The VGA port is connected only to the Nvidia card (this is according to my online research, as I don't know how to check this).

Ubuntu :: DELL 1536 - 32 Bit Or 64 Bit - Recognize The 1920x1200 Screen - Webcam - HDMI

Jan 28, 2010

I ordered a DELL studio 1536 with AMD turion rm-74 and vista preinstalled. Although it is still in production, I plan to install ubuntu on it and install an xp/vista guest in virtualbox. However, I am wondering if I can do it. There are many questions, partial answers are welcome:

1- Can ubuntu (32 bit or 64 bit) recognize the 1920x1200 screen, webcam, HDMI etc etc? any tricks if it can?

2- Is it possible that I ghost the vista so that I can restore it later in the virtualbox? and can I upgrade it to win7 from vbox? DELL says it is eligible for free upgrade, a very weird option nowadays.

3- To what extend will the guest OS control the machine? For example, is it possible to output a website video (e.g. live TV in bloomberg.com which is only available in windows) from the guest to the HDMI?

Fedora :: External Monitor Won't Work - Both Monitor And Laptop Screen Black

I am having problems getting my external monitor to work. When I plug in the monitor, both the laptop screen and the external monitor go black. When I unplug the monitor, the laptop screen works again.
When I startup with the external monitor plugged in, neither screen works or teh computer hangs or something.

I have had the external monitor going on a couple of occasions. I did manage to configure my monitors through System Settings > Display. I turned off the laptop monitor as I just want to use the external. But after rebooting, things didn't work.

I have a Thinkpad E420, Fedora 15

Fedora Hardware :: External Monitor Not Detected - Dell Laptop - Monitor

Aug 17, 2011

My software and hardware information are as follows. I have Fedora 12 and KDE 4.4.5 installed on a Dell Vostro 1500 laptop. I believe it's a 64 bit processor; it's an Intel Core 2 Duo CPU. The external monitor is a Dell as well.

My problem is that my system does not seem to be detecting an external monitor that I have connected. Everything else is working just fine; however, I would like to have the option of attaching an external monitor. When I plug the external monitor into the laptop, the external monitor remains black and appears to be in power save mode. The results of xrandr -q (with or without the external monitor attached: it doesn't appear to change) are as follows.

Code:

How can I get my laptop to recognize that the external monitor is even connected? Let me know if I can be more specific or provide additional details.

Debian Hardware :: How To Get Monitor Information On System?

Feb 9, 2010

I am new to Debian and Linux all together. At work, we have dual even triple minitors at our stations. I have not seen this on linux until I went to a co-workers house. I wanted to do the same and I have two monitors. I asked how but he uses X on Gentoo.How can I go about learning how to do this? I can tell you now, I DO NOT know how to get the monitor information on the system. I DO NOT know where to find the configuration files for my monitor.

I know I am going to need drivers and stuff. What I asking I guess is where I should start in order to get this going. I am running Debian (lenny) 4 GIGS ram, 1.5TB HDD and a Dual core processor. I know the video card I have is a dual head video card for two monitors. I would like to thank everyone in advanced for their and hopefully I can learn something new and be able to do this on my own in the future.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Monitor Is Connected Via An HDMI Cable But No Signal

Jul 21, 2011

I am running 11.04 on a new Gateway with 8 gigs of ram. It is a solo installation. The monitor is connected via an HDMI cable. Everything was great (installation running smoothly for over a month) until last night. I just installed a netgear router and was setting it up with the system to try to get Stanza on my IPAD to connect to Calibre. Anyway, i suffered a severe freeze up warranting a hard boot. I could see the drive working, ancillary drives lit up, keyboard lit up so I know the system is working. The monitor did not come on, It shows a yellow light indication no signal. It is a 28" Hansspree. I tested the monitor by hooking it to a laptop. The monitor is fine. I cannot see anything on the screen so I can't boot to repair mode or use a CD. There is no signal.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Won't Recognize External HDD Or USB?

Jul 12, 2010

I'm trying to restore my laptop through the Ubuntu 10.04 Live CD. A while ago, Windows 7 died. I've tried everything possible to make it work again to no avail. At first I gave up on recovering my files and proceeded to formatting it, but that didn't work either, although it would boot from the CD, it would get stuck. It's as if the HDD couldn't be accessed.

After trying almost every version of Windows available, I decided to give Ubuntu a shot. I have used Ubuntu before and I thought maybe I could use the Live CD to see whether I could access the HD or not and, if not, claim the warranty (I bought the computer 4 months ago). I downloaded Ubuntu 10.04 and booted from it and was able to access all my files.

I wanted to move my files to an external HDD through the USB, but I plugged it in and nothing happened, no icon appeared on the desktop or on the Computer directory. I plugged in a normal USB flash drive, and no icon appeared. The funny thing is that the USB led lit up, so I knew it was connected to the computer.

I thought maybe Ubuntu wasn't mounting the drives and that I had to do it manually, so I ran both the lsusb and fdisk -l commands on the terminal with both drives plugged in and neither of them appeared listed. I even opened the message log to see if there was some reaction when I plugged it in, but nothing worked. :S

I restarted the computer and opened the BIOS to see whether the USB drive was enabled, as I had previously disabled some options trying to restore Windows, but the external HDD was being recognized by the computer; on the boot list it showed the name and serial of the drive, so that wasn't it.

I downloaded previous versions of Ubuntu, thinking maybe it had something to do with that (although I know it shouldn't), and the same thing happened: I could access the internal HDD but the external drives weren't being recognized.

I've browsed through the forums, going over the same procedures as other people with the same problem, but nothing works for me and now that I know that my files are safe, I don't want to format it anymore before saving at least the most important ones ><

I think I have 2 options before I run out of ideas. I could use GParted or Partition Editor from the Live CD to resize the partition to make enough space to install Ubuntu on my computer (I was thinking of doing it, anyway) and then fix everything from there instead of from the Live CD (if that changes anything), but I'm afraid that the files in the partition could become corrupted or damaged, and I don't want that. The other option would be to install Ubuntu on the external HDD and boot from it, as it WOULD HAVE to recognize it.

I want to know if there is any way to solve it before resorting to the latter option, as the HDD is not mine and I don't feel right partitioning it.
