Feedback on the Dell Latitude E7470 - Crashing when connecting external display

Asked by Brigham on 2016-04-16

The laptop freezes immediately upon connecting an external monitor to back of docking station. This can be either VGA, DVI or Display port. I haven't tried HDMI cable yet. The screen immediately locks up, no errror message appears or anything. I know it's locked up because the clock on the status bar doesn't change.

I'm using Ubuntu 14.04.
