HDMI causing BOOT failure

Post by rinus »

Hi folks,
I have connected a monitor via HDMI to my HP pavillion DV7 with broken screen.
Ubuntu does.n't mind and shows everything fine on my screen. Alas Mint does not start up at all and hangs when using HDMI output.

Any ideas?

What version of ubuntu do you use? I would like to test it on my HD2000 laptop with a usb connection to a larger screen. When using mint how does the "boot failure" manifests itself? Is it frozen image of the last stages of booting process?
