I'm going to add an external to my notebook. Video processor is Intel i965, so I installed driver xf86-video-intel. Executing xrandr, I get:


VGA1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
LVDS1 connected 1280x800+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 287mm x 180mm
1280x800 59.8*+
1024x768 60.0
800x600 60.3 56.2
640x480 59.9
DVI1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)By the unknown reason, xrandr don't see HDMI port. In addition, these 3 ports have been listed in xrandr output even before I'd install video driver. Maybe, the port called "DVI1" is the HTML port?

xrandr --verbose gives:


...

"xrandr --output DVI1 --same-as LVDS1" executed without any error message, but the external monotor shows nothing.

"xrandr --addmode DVI1 1280x800@60" executed with error "cannot find mode 1280x800@60".
