Dear friends,

I wonder if anyone could give me a bit of help? I appreciate that 
some/most members of the NLUG are heading off to the Isle of Man for the 
Linux Bier Wanderlung 2016 in the next few days but if any of you are 
not going or are around afterwards could I meet up with any of you for a 
bit of help?

I live in Chilwell, as you may have picked up from an earlier e-mail to 
this forum. I use Linux Mint and since upgrading to Mint 18 I can no 
longer use my LG second monitor alongside my Samsung 110 netbook. I am 
in contact with a guy on Mint forums but I haven't been able to sort it 
by going back to Mint 17.3 or trying even the newest of new kernels. I 
think the problem seems to be in the boot sequence so I wonder if I 
could bring my monitor and netbook to one of you guys and see if you 
could help me. I think it only needs someone with command line expertise 
to get inside my booting sequence and load an Intel driver - but I don't 
know how to do this.

Can anyone help me on this sometime? I can fit in with any time that 
suits you.

Many thanks,

Nic Deane
