There is no output or monitor detected when I plug it in to my Dell Inspiron 15 N5050 on Fedora 20. xrandr output:

For me all I need to run is xrandr --output LVDS1 --auto --output HDMI1 --auto --right-of LVDS1 This assumes that I am connecting through HDMI. If I am connecting through VGA, I will need to change HDMI1 to VGA1. The option "--right-of LVDS1" says that HDMI1 should be like extension of the LVDS1 monitor to the right. If that does not help, check if you pluin-in the monitor, restart X (log-off and login again) and run xrandr will display HDMI1 connected. If that is not the case, I don't know what to advise you...
