I'm using the laptop mantioned above (GTX1650 configuration) and installed a linux distro alongside Windows 10. The only one (but at the same time - the most annoying) problem is no signal to external monitor via HDMI cable (same thing with Intel GPU set as a default and the Nvidia one). The interesting thing here is the fact that when I set the display mode to clone the main display, the external one just turn on and shows cloned screen (with the main screen resolution set - 1080p). The problem occurs when I want to turn off the laptop screen and use the external one only, or use the expand mode.
I've tried a lot of different distros - ubuntu based, fedora, kde neon - no difference. It may be a GPU driver problem I guess, but I've also tried the installation without proprietary drivers - same thing.
BTW. All the distros detected the external display properly, i.e. it is visible in both settings app and xrand list.
@EDIT At this moment I run Ubuntu Budgie 20.04
