Lenovo Ideapad L340-15IRH Gaming - Issues with HDMI, wifi, keyboard, battery

Lenovo Ideapad L340-15IRH Gaming - No HDMI and more issues

Hallo

I have an Lenovo Ideapad L340-15IRH Gaming - NO HDMI and more issues
installed multiboot with windows 10 and Linux Mint 19.3 Cinnamon
It has Issues with HDMI, wifi, touch pad, keyboard, battery.
I am an experienced linux user, knowing how to install and maintain Linux

Mentioned issues below dont show up when running in windows 10
So I dont believe there are hardware issues
Im not sure about the battery, since I almost do not use windows.

HDMI out does not work. I cannot bring a 2nd monitor up and running
Touchpad does not work : can not move the cursor using my fingers on the touchpad.
Mismatch with text processing wrt Home and End key and using CTRL and Shift key to select whole words and lines
Wifi does not connect 50% of startup
The battery does not stand for 2 hours, when not connected to the power.

How to get this solved. Who can help ?

If Im not able to get this solved on short notice, I will get rid of it and get a laptop of another brand.
Because I do need to do my things. It took me already way too long with trying, discussing, searching on the intranet.

Try this:

1. Establish internet connection by other means:

2. Install the latest kernel of the 5.4 series by means of the Canonical Kernel Team PPA:

3. Reboot and test.

Internet by a non wifi option is no solution.
For some reason, the wifi connection issue becomes more managable, by toggling wifi off and on. This option is now available in the the network applet in the menu bar.

Don't use unsupported upstream kernels. Downgrade to the latest 5.4 kernel by means of the semi-official PPA that I mentioned in my previous post.

Install a brand-new unsupported kernel
is the statement
Install the very latest kernel in the list.

Don't pull things out of their perspective and context. That how-to is about installing the latest kernel from the Canonical Kernel Team PPA, not the latest vanilla upstream kernel from some godforsaken horror like UKUU.
