Description Matthias 2010-05-30 15:21:04 UTC
I'm using a T500 Lenovo laptop including an ATI HD 3650 graphics card. Until upgrading to the new Fedora 13 version it was possible to plug an external monitor. By now, the system does not recognize any external monitors - not via docking station and not when connected directly by display port.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
X.Org X Server 1.8.0
Release Date: 2010-04-02
X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0
Build Operating System: x86-02 2.6.18-164.15.1.el5 
Current Operating System: Linux #1 SMP Thu May 13 05:16:23 UTC 2010 x86_64

Actual results:
external monitor is not recognized.

Expected results:
external monitors are displayed within the monitor preferences dialog.

Comment 1 Matthias 2010-05-30 15:32:11 UTC
Another monitor is recognized, yet max resolution is 1024x768 instead of 1680x1050.

Thank you,

Thanks for the bug report.  We have reviewed the information you have provided above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful in our diagnosis of this issue.

Please add drm.debug=0x04 to the kernel command line, restart computer, and attach

* X server log file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log)
* output of the dmesg command, and
* system log (/var/log/messages)

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.

Comment 3 Matthias 2010-06-02 07:13:48 UTC

thank you for answering. I doublechecked that "bug" twice and came to know, that the two monitors I tested with both do not work any more. On a working monitor, everything works fine.

Thus, thank you very much and sorry for the inconvenience.
