I tried to switch of keyboard lights on my MSI - notebook, trying many combinations of fn + F1 - F10 (and other buttons). Sometime during this period, the second screen was disconnected.

I could not restore function by pressing the combinations a second time (not 100% sure I got all), neither be re-plugging nor re-booting.

Under settings - devices - displays, there is no second monitor listed anymore.

output of:

spci -nnk |& awk -v n='[0300]' 'p&&/^\S/{p=0}!p{p=index($0,n)}p'; xrandr

is:

    Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! Could you please edit your question to include the output of the terminal command lspci -nnk |& awk -v n='[0300]' 'p&&/^\S/{p=0}!p{p=index($0,n)}p'; xrandr? Thanks. – David Foerster Nov 1 '18 at 9:18
