I bought this converter couple of months ago and working just fine till two days ago ubuntu upgraded itself and it stopped working for some reason

during boot it works just fine whenever it comes to X it doesn't display anything and even FN + F7 (im using thinkpad W500) it doesn't switch

i think the problem is with FN + F7 that switch between screens because even the normal VGA cable of the monitor when i connect it and hit FN+F7 it doesn't switch between screens like it used todo (before the auto-upgrade)

any advise?

Thank you.
