    Hi, i'm not sure this is the place to post it, but I do have a problem with my new dell inspiron 17 3737

    the processor is a i3-4010U with 4400 graphics.

    I use the laptop 17" and a 22" screen on HDMI

    under windows 7 or 8, this works just fine.

    under ANY ubuntu between 12.04 and daily build 14, HDMI works fine, but the laptop colors are inverted. orange becomes green, and only 1 of 2 pixels are used.

    nothing i found on updating drivers , boot parameters, modeset, xorg config or xrandr helps.

    when booting with nomodeset the laptop display becomes ok, but i can't get the HDMI to work.


    Anybody any ideas ? I'm wrestling with this for about a month ...

    Hmm. Strange. Is this the issue?

    Nothing springs to mind immediately (and this query should really go into the other forum,
    this one's supposed to be for the installer itself, but I'll see if someone can move the thread
    to that forum for you).

    I'll ask around but it might take a couple of days for people to get back to me.
