I am running archlinux with i3 window manager and xorg in a new framework13 laptop. Updated to the latest Bios.
Linux archframework13 6.6.1-arch1-1 #1 SMP PREEMPT_DYNAMIC Wed, 08 Nov 2023 16:05:38 +0000 x86_64 GNU/Linux`
Framework Laptop 13 (AMD Ryzen 7040Series)
I have a problem that xrandr does not detect the HDMI monitor when plugging in an hdmi cable. I have ruled out a problem with the expansion slot itself as I plugged it to a lenovo laptop as usb-c and detected the monitor fine.
I am at the end of my rope and not sure what more to check. Would appreciate any help!
I had a similar problem where hdmi in the “2” Slot was not recognised by windows. It turned out the whole usbc was not working (not even charging).
(Slot 2 cannot do display out so this may have been the trigger)
I got it running again by going into the BIOS and using the “Battery disconnect option” Opening it up and manually powercycling the board may have also worked.
I guess some firmware was stuck in a bad state.
