I had the external Dell monitor plugged into my laptop when I installed ubuntu 13.04. It seems after that ubuntu thinks that my external Dell monitor is the default monitor. I can't display only the laptop monitor without displaying the external one(every time I plugged out the external one, the laptop went to black screen). This means I can only use my laptop as a desktop computer now. Does anyone have any idea about this?
