I am running Linux Mint 7 on an Asus Eee family PC (900A).
Thus far I love the idea of my small ultra portable Netbook running a Linux based OS and having the option to hook up to my Dell 22" monitor when I want to get down to business. But I am having intermittent trouble with my dual monitor setup. I have all the power management options set to not disturb operations while the laptop lid is closed or plug/unplugged. I also have all the display settings set to recognize the 22" monitor and yet the monitor will just blank out periodically. I will toggle the function keys between pushing the display b/w LCD or native and effectively regain my laptops display but not the 22" Dell display. The only thing I have found to regain my external display is to Restart or Shutdown my system. But then I am left playing Russian Roulette until it craps out again.
Is there a driver update that might help? Am I expecting too much from my Eee PC to display to a 22" external monitor?
