I am running a Lenovo W530 with Ubuntu 12.10. I have tried every solution I could find for this issue but to no avail.
Ubuntu will not recognize that I have a VGA monitor connected to the laptop. I realize that the VGA connector goes through the NVIDIA driver.
What I have tried(would provide more links but I need my rep needs to be greater than 10 to post more than two):
Trying to force the driver to be on with bbswitch
- changing the BIOS so that it would run in Discrete (it will boot but I get horrible resolution and still no external display...also seems that compwiz does not work well while in this mode
- Went through a couple of additional threads about getting a VIRTUAL display. However, every time I try to install the patch that was hacked for the intel driver for the virtual display capabilities, my intel display crashes and I have to revert.
- Virtualization is enabled for my Intel display in the BIOS
I have hit a wall. I have also read through about 10 different questions on here and none have helped. Should I completely scrap the Nvidia drivers on my machine and run only with bumblebee? Has there been any success with that?
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
