I am trying to connect my Lenovo, Thinkpad laptop with my DELL external screen via HDMI . Either the external screen blinks and shows the colors in very bad quality or it doesn’t connect all with “No HDMI signal from your device” message. Laptop runs Ubuntu 21.04.
My external screen works fine via the same HDMI cable with another laptop. Moreover, my Levono, Thinkpad also works fine with another external screen via HDMI .
I have tried so many proposals found in the forums here but nothing helped. Some of the things I tried was disabling secure boot, editing
/lib/systemd/system/gdm3.service , restarting
gdm3 , installing
nvidia-driver-435 , checking about
blacklist-nvidia.conf files, running
update-initramfs -u etc etc but nothing worked.
Moreover, I am not sure whether it’s related but sometimes when I boot my system, I can see a message
Nvidia GPU not detected. It is not shown every time I boot though, just sometimes.
Do you maybe have any idea what is happening? Thanks in advance!
