Centos 6.5 on Inspiron 7558 - No external display detected

Post by jasetails » 2016/07/05 16:20:42

Hey all,

I'm running Centos 6.5 on an Inspiron 7558 laptop, and most thinks work alright.
The native display works fine, but I'm having a lot of trouble trying to get an external display detected on the laptops HDMI port.

I'm thinking its a driver issue, because I can't seem to find any applicable drivers around.

Any help would be appreciated.

Step 1: yum update to 6.8

If it still doesn't work then post the output from lspci -nn | grep -i vga
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!
