Lenovo Y510P – Connect HDMI Monitor on Ubuntu 13.10


When I boot from Ubuntu 13.10 64 bit live from USB, then secondary monitor on HDMI works fine. After installing Ubuntu, the secondary monitor on HDMI port doesn't work. If I reboot with live Ubuntu, then monitor works again.

Is it a bug? Is there a patch or a workaround?

UPDATE: lshw -c video | grep configuration

When I boot from Live USB: configuration: driver=i915 latency=0 (dual monitor works)

When I boot from SSD: configuration: latency=0
