My set up, is that my HP Spectre x360 laptop is connected to an external monitor / mouse / ethernet via a hub. I am using Ubuntu 16.04.

It usually works fine. Yesterday I had my cracked laptop screen replaced. Since then, I can't get the external monitor to be detected. Is it possible that having a new screen (touchscreen) on my laptop could have affected things?

    I don't think so. It's more likely that the repairman has disconnected something he should have reconnected. – harrymc Oct 30 '18 at 18:47

Screen replacement is harmless, unless a mistake was made. I have seen it being done several times by a professional with never a problem.

It's very likely that the repairman has disconnected something he should have reconnected. Call him and complain loudly.
