Problem with external monitor connected to Mini Display port

2017-05-03, 8:04 AM

Thinkpad X230i

I have an Acer R221Q external monitor. If I connect my Thinkpad to the monitor's HDMI port using the Mini Display port, in Windows 7, I get the dreaded blinking.

If I connect from Linux Mint, everything works perfectly OK!!!!!

 

Is there a solution for the Windows fault?

Solved! See the solution
