No signal after monitor restart

Post by lvleow » Sat May 19, 2018 10:53 am

The issue I'm having is when I power on the computer/TV, initially everything works perfectly. But if I restart the TV or switch inputs then all of a sudden there's no signal. Unplugging and replugging the HDMI cable back in does nothing, the only way to get a signal back is restarting the computer itself.

Ok, so I narrowed it down to the OS and probably not hardware. Linuxmint 18 (xfce 64) runs without problem in regards to switching inputs/restarting the TV. Linuxmint 18.3 (xfce 64) seems to be the culprit. How can I revert the video settings of 18.3 back to 18?

Edit:. I would just use 18, but in that version wifi, ethernet, and bluetooth don't work at all. After hooking up a wifi dongle and connecting to the internet, the system didn't find any drivers for the above devices. So it looks like 18.3 is the way to go.
