Fedora Hardware :: External Display Not Detected - Dell E6410
Oct 5, 2010
I just got a new laptop, and installed fedora 13 on it. I have had no major problems, until i tried to hook up a external monitor. It does not show up in the gnome-display application, and the keyboard switching button combination (Fn+f#) does not work. On my past laptop, this worked fresh from the install, f8->f10->f11.
Dell Latitude E6410
nVidia Corporation GT218 [NVS 3100M] (rev a2)
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.
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.
I've installed the drivers from nVidia. When I go into the NVIDIA X Server Settings application, in the X Server Display Configuration setcion, and click the "Configure" button, "TwinView" is disabled. Also, clicking "Detect Displays" doesn't pick up my monitor (which is connected through a port replicator - keyboard and mouse in that port replicator work fine).
Has anyone else seen this? Is this just a limitation of the current nvidia linux drivers?
I just installed Debian jessie on my Dell Latitude E6410 using the UEFI install. No everything went well during the install, but after the install the first boot i ran into an issue that the laptop will not boot.
When I go in to the boot menu of the Dell Latitude E6410, I see that debian has created a uefi name (Debian)
When I select this, it boots without any issues. After again a reboot again, no luck still a black screen during the boot.
Seems that the only option to get my laptop booting is by pressing F12 and select Debian in the UEFI boot of the laptop.
Is there any way i can get my laptop to boot Debian directly from UEFI, without having to press F12?? (Also disabled all legacy devices to start up but no luck)...
- Debian Jessie X64 (Using 32/64 network install, via USB) - Dell Latitude E6410 i5 (1280x800 intel graphics) latest bios A16 - SSD drive (Samsung 470 series) - Debian is the only OS installed
I have my brand new Dell latitude e6410 delivered with Windows 7 already installed. I want a dual boot and I decided to try SUSE for the first time. I used the installation DVD, the installation seemed to end up well. The problem is that already at the first reboot, the screen went completely black. By pressing ctrl-alt-del I can reboot the laptop. It seems to me a problem with the graphic card.
My setup is: Dell Latitude e6410 Intel i5 m560 @2.67 GHz nVidia NVS 3100M 4Gb DDR ram Intel 82577LM Gigabit Network connector
If I start in failsafe mode, the X server starts, I have KDE, although with a somewhat sketchy graphic, I can use SUSE almost normally. The main problem in this case being that the system doesn't find any ethernet/wi-fi device, so I cannot connect to the Internet (I'm writing from Win7 right now). I tried choosing the default SUSE boot with the additional boot option "nomodeset" at the grub prompt. This is a suggestion mentioned in another post on this forum, although in that case the problem was coming from a bug dealing with an Intel graphic card. The system goes up but then kde doesn't start. I'm asked to lgin at a prompt. If I try to launch kde from command line (startkde), it complains that the variable $DISPLAY is not setup.
This is where I am now. I'm quite out of ideas, so I want to ask you few things. First stupid question: is the problem coming likely from the drivers of the nvidia graphic card? Second question: in that case, how can I fix it, considering that the linux partition is "isolated"? The fact that in failsafe SUSE doesn't see any network adapter concerns me a bit.
Ive been trying everything possible, and cant get this Intel card to connect. Here are the details Centos 5.5 Kernel 2.6.18-194.el5 Intel 82577LM Gigabit on dell laptop e6410 Broadband router with gateway 10.54.7.1 My network is 10.54.7.* linux sees the exact card in the configuration utility. If I choose dhcp, and try to bring up teh device, I get "no network, cable unplugged?" error If I configure static ip for eth0 like
10.54.7.2 255.255.0.0 gw 10.54.7.1
The interface will come up (seen in ifconfig) but cant ping the gateway. At one point it did work... I just cant get it back - Ive reinstalled like 4 times... in hopes Id catch something different, no luck. My network serices about 10 pcs many of them centos linux - no problem using static or dhcp with my router- I just got this new laptop and cant get ths card to work.
I am trying to put FC12 on a new Dell E6410 (laptop) with video "00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Device 0046 (rev 02)". I used the Live disk and successfully installed, but then I updated. Thereafter when I boot I get a black screen. I cannot even get to the login.
Unfortunately I really do not know where to start to try to trouble shoot. (I can get into run level 3 on the latest kernel). Also the issue seems to come about from kernel 18.104.22.168 to kernel 22.214.171.124 since the blank screen issue does not arise in the former. For now I switched the order of these kernel in GRUB so the older one boots first and this seems to work.
Although the blank screen is my most pressing issue, I am having others too (synaptic mouse, wifi, suspend, internal camera). Well, hopefully once I can run the newest kernel these issue will disappear.
My brother has just installed 9.10 on his Inspiron 6400 and would like to have a dual screen setup using both the laptop display and a flatscreen attached to the VGA socket. Using the standard display options, the two displays are recognised and when the 'mirror screens' option is disabled then settings applied it works to the extent of allowing the cursor to move between the two monitors; however the monitors display nothing except a black screen and the cursor.
I've updated everything to the current version, had a look for restricted drivers (none are suggested by the GUI tool thing) and checked both displays work (both independently and as mirrored). I also had a look for an xorg.conf to poke around in but there wasn't one there.
I'm trying to install OpenSuse 11.2 64bit on a new Dell Latitude E6410 notebook. This is the Intel i7 processor with 8 Gb of RAM and Nvidia NVS 3100M graphics. I can boot from my 64bit installer DVD, but once I choose either Live version, to test it out, or just go for Install, after the first selection screen where I can change the default video at the bottom, I just get a black screen, no video.
I can't find any info on installing Suse on this notebook, (I think its only be available for a couple of weeks now). What do I do to get the screen to show me the graphical installer, Or how do I make the KDE Live version run from the 64bit DVD. I also tried the 32bit version DVD, but it wouldn't give graphics either, so it seems like an X issue.
I have been unable to get both opensuse 11.2 and 11.3 32 bit versions work properly on my DELL Latitude E6410 laptop. With both 11.2 and 11.3 KDE Live CDs I get no graphical display when I attempt to boot into the Live system. VESA mode does not help either, only text mode works. So I installed the system in text mode but during the first boot the screen went blank again.
One peculiar thing is that 11.1 installs and boots fine, what gives? Is this even supported or I shouldn't even try to bother getting this setup to work? Has anyone been able to run opensuse 11.3 on a Core i7 integrated Intel graphics system with X system working?
Installed fedora 13 to hard drive on fresh partition,installed ok,ran updater,installed all updates.all working ok but fedora is not able to detect my laptop monitor.i am unable to increase resolution.stuck on 800 * 600. when a window in open and i need to click at the bottom of the window i cant because it is bellow the screen.I went to [URL] to look for drivers.it only shows display drivers for red hat 7.0.i tried them but wont install.is thier drivers i can use for fedora 13,or a way to force resolution into 1024*768.
i have installed red hat 5.1 on my dell inspiron 1525 laptop.It is not detecting any ethernet card.driver is marvel yukon 88E8040So far i found this package to be installed kmod-sk98lin-PAE-10.70.7.3-2.el5.elrepo.i686.rpm but it is showing me the dependencies problems..
today my windows crashed and i decided to move into Linux.But here comes my biggest problem now, i cannot connect to wireless network but i am able to connect through wired connectionmine is a 10 year old computer so i think the card used is Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABGi am using Fedora 14. please note that i know only very little in Linux so please respond accordingly
I just had a fresh install of Fedora 13 x86_64 on my notebook after using fedora 13 x32 for a while.I am using KDE Desktop.Everything seemed to be working fine out of the box except for minor problems with sound and plugins.The biggest issue is that Fedora does not recognize when I plug an external USB HDD (WD 320 GB for this matter).The USB light on the HDD does not go on, and nothing is auto mounted.It seems that USB does not work at all - I have tried to plug another USB device and it didn't seem to have power.
Acer Aspire 5820 TimelineX, Mobility Radeon 5650, running open source radeon drivers. Laptop has VGA output (haven't tried it yet, will later tonight, I suspect it works) and an HDMI output. Monitor connected to laptop through HDMI causes garbled picture (either a set of lines made of little square blocks or a pink vertical line running down the leftmost edge with white, dashed horizontal lines travelling up the screen from the bottom to the top and repeating). The previous happens at startup, the latter happens if I disconnect the monitor and plug it back in again after logging in.
Running KDE 4. HDMI port is not detected (does not show up in gnome-config-display or in krandr or in xrandr). It does show my laptop's built in screen and my VGA output, but does not list my HDMI output anywhere. HDMI seems to show up in a message in dmesg, but other than that, no.
Included is the output of a few commands. All commands were run with the monitor plugged in to HDMI. 'monitor-probe-using-X radeon' failed with "Unrecognized option: -probeonly". Monitor does not display anything if plugged in on startup (some people got something, then it disappeared when X started). I haven't played with Xorg.conf yet, I'm not sure what to write for HDMI output. I haven't tried the fglrx drivers yet ((*shudders*)). I can't get any info on this problem, other people have had similar issues but they had trouble with getting a particular resolution to work or no sound through HDMI. I don't care about sound, just want a picture. Monitor is an LG Flatron L246WH. I can use VGA if push comes to shove, but I'd really like to get HDMI working.
Few months ago I stood on my netbook running F11 and broke the screen. I don't believe there's anything else wrong with it as the lights and fans act as normal when I turn it on. I hooked it up to a monitor but it doesn't automatically display on the external screen. So I have a pretty odd and possibly quite difficult request. Any step-by-step guide of which buttons to press after turning the machine on, in order to get it to switch to the external display? I just need something along the lines of, press enter, tab, type password, enter, press alt-a, down, down, down, enter, tab, etc. Another possible solution, a very long shot, would be a boot disk that defaults to an external screen?
I have installed opensuse11.3 on my dell desktop. I get the gui with only 4 or 8 bit colors. I have resolution 0f 1024x768, which I have given at installation time. I cannot change it any more. I have followed your SDB:Configuring graphics cards - openSUSE guide. here is my lspci output
I have tried to configure the xorg with command Xorg -configure. I surprised that it cause Segmentation fault. I have captured the Xorg -configure command in strace. I am pasting here certain last lines, I cannot paste the whole output because it is too large.
I have a Dell Precision M4500, Intel Core i5 CPU, running Linux (Ubuntu Lucid), and would like to keep an eye on CPU temperature. I've tried lm-sensors: sensors-detect didn't find any sensors; following its hint ("This is relatively common on laptops, where thermal management is handled by ACPI rather than the OS.") I tried acpi -V but got nothing thermal. The Gnome panel applet "Hardware Sensors Monitor" reports on GPU temperature but nothing else.
ISSUE SOLVED: FOUND SOLUTION ON LINUX MINT COMMUNITY[URL]... The solution is for debian, but it worked for me on Kubuntu 11.04. I just installed Kubuntu, and my wireless is not getting detected. I tried a variety of solutions I found online, but none worked. It worked perfectly for Ubuntu Gnome.
When I tried installing the Broadcom drivers in the "Additional Drivers", I got an error that the driver could not be installed.
I have spent many time searching for my prob but couldn't solve it. i installed ubuntu 9.10 recently. the problem is that my integrated webcam and microphone are not being detected. i tried cheese, camorama webcam viewer and skype.. its like that webcam drivers are not installed. and i couldn't find any drivers. camorama gives the error: could not connect to video device(/dev/video0) cheese also says No camera found!
reading other threads i found that lsusb comand output might help so here is its output.. code...
I am running the latest version of arch linux on a Dell Latitude D420. So far everything has worked perfectly except the wireless. It seems that Arch does not even detect the wireless because ifconfig -a only gives me the loopback and eth0. I installed ndiswrapper as well as the drivers. lsmod | grep ndiswrapper shows that ndiswrapper is being loaded on boot. I tried to install the iwp3945 drivers, but they have become obsolete so pacman was unable to find them. I also tried installing the iwl3945 drivers as explained here [URL] but still no luck.
This is my problem, I want to install debian 5.5 Lenny stable (2.6.26-2-amd64) on our new Dell PowerEdge T610 with a PERC controller H200 but nothing to do, the default Debian installer does not detect it. After more research, the module that I must load is "mpt2sas" and after normaly my hard-drive will be detected I'm going on the Dell site, there are only drivers for RedHat and Suze distribution .. I still try to install rpm packages but without success!
Have done the following troubleshooting suggestions from around the www:
LAN controller is enabled in BIOS dmesg | grep eth0 returns nothing lspci -v | grep -i net shows wifi adapter but no ethernet adapter ifconfig -a does not show eth0 ifconfig eth0 up confirms ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device Have done lsmod, but not sure what I should be looking for.
I would post lspci, dmesg or any other output, but as the adapter is not being detected, I have no network/internet connection from that laptop, have only one other Windows based (at this stage) laptop that I am using to write this message, and so would have to type out the output manually.Adapter indicators are both on when laptop is powered up. Am unsure if the ethernet adapter has somehow gone to sleep, and if so, unsure how to wake it.Perhaps the ethernet adapter is defective, but am hoping to confirm this before looking for a workaround/replacement.
I got some troubles with my external VGA output of a Notebook. I tried various things (see below) but now I ran out of ideas. I studied the sticky post in this forum about configuring graphics cards but unfortunately this gave me no new hints. My System:
Fujitsu Siemens Lifebook E Series OpenSuse 11.3 (i586, 32Bit) Graphics: Intel 965GM
I found lots of questions and solutions concerning the 965GM but they all are just about configuring the VGA monitor/screen in Xorg.conf.d / xrandr. I'd LOVE to do so but in my case the VGA outout isn't even detected for some reason (please see details below) Summary of my findings up to now:
i have centos Linux server running with kernel version 2.6.18-164.el5 and release is CentOS release 5.4 (Final). The problem is when i connect external harddrive which is seaget free agent to this box, it doesnot detect . fdisk -l doesnot show any such partition.
