Hello ubuntu community!
After wiping my hard drive and reinstalling windows alongside ubuntu (dual boot), I'm having troubles getting my external monitor (plugged into my laptop) to work. I've had ubuntu previously, and I remember altering the xorg.conf file, but from what I've searched for just now indicates that I do not need to for such a simple configuration. I also don't remember exactly how I altered the file, and I cannot find the sources from which I found out how to do it.
When I boot up I can see GRUB and the ubuntu loading up screen on both my laptop screen and my external monitor screen, but only my laptop screen displays anything after that point.
Thank you for reading this, and thank you in advance for any help.
