Has anyone done this? I've googled around for hours but no luck. Some suggest to change the BIOS "Display" settings (to "integrated" or some other value), others suggest to use xrandr, others say add a file with specific lines in it (what lines?) in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d), but no amount of experimenting around has enabled my monitor yet. Ideas?

xrandr -q


Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 8192 x 8192
LVDS1 connected 1920x1080+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 344mm x 193mm
   1920x1080      60.0*+   50.0  
VGA1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)

So it turns out it was a bug. After I set the BIOS graphics display to "discrete" and disabled VT-d it worked! It was a bug , go figure.
