View Full Version : [ubuntu] Dell Monitor Problems with 11.04 and a Lenovo T410

July 16th, 2011, 08:25 PM
I have an external monitor which is a Dell 22inch, about 4 years old.

I have 11.04 running on a Lenovo T410 laptop.

If I boot up with the monitor connected to the laptop vga port, I get a blank laptop screen and a green flickering mess on the dell monitor.

If I plug the monitor into the laptop after booting, I get both screens blank, with a cursor visible on the laptop, and a very vague flickering mess of a cursor on the monitor.

FN 7 does not make any difference.

I've tested the monitor on a windows machine and its fine.

This is really frustrating, so much so that I'm thinking of downgrading to 10.10 becuase that worked fine.

Can anyone give me some ideas on what to try that might fix this?
