I just installed fedora 22 on my Lenovo laptop. I've been running fedora 21 for some time, with no hassle. When I connect an external screen, the screen get black. When I remove the VGA-cable, the computer restarts.

Anyone know what's wrong? Is there a fix out there?

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GK107M [GeForce GT 755M] (rev a1)

01:00.1 Audio device: NVIDIA Corporation GK107 HDMI Audio Controller (rev a1)

07:00.0 3D controller: NVIDIA Corporation GK107M [GeForce GT 755M] (rev a1)

I have tried to install xorg-x11-drv-nvidia and akmod-nvidia-304xx, with no luck. If I install those, the computer won't restart.
