http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello, I've recently installed Ubuntu 11.10 32bit on my laptop. I use a 2nd monitor connected to my laptop and after installing & updating Ubuntu for the first time, I went to display settings to set the monitor as the main display and deactivated the laptop screen display. This worked fine, the laptop screen was off and the monitor display was working fine; however when I restarted, the monitor display isn't detected anymore and neither is the laptop display (presumably since I turned that one off in the display settings). So basically I have no display at all from the purple splash scr (Hardware)
