View Full Version : [ubuntu] 12.04 connecting external monitor computer freezes

May 29th, 2012, 05:27 PM
After starting up Unbuntu 12.04 and I connect an external monitor to my laptop, the system freezes up.

If I try to startup with the external monitor, the same problem occurs.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Did you already look into the log files? The file /var/log/Xorg.0.log and the file .xsession-errors may provide information about why that happens.

Weird. The monitor started working fine a few hours later.

Thanks anyway for your help.
