[SOLVED] Get dual monitors with HDMI adapter dell Latitude E5470

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I have a Dell Latitude E5470 Laptop, but I don't have an HDMI monitor, so I bought an adapter VGA to HDMI, when I connect it seems that I have the second desktop, but the integrated screen gets off, and don't power on again, even if I disconnect HDMI.


I've tried to use WhateverGreen kexts, but I always get kernel panic with it.

If it's anything similar to my E7470, you need to close the laptop so that the external monitor becomes primary. Then open the lid, the LCD will switch back to primary and the external becomes secondary.
