Lg gram - KDE - the external monitor turn on only if plugin it before the boot or after the command inix.

Hi all,
below the hardware details.
I have a LG gram laptop with a little annoying problem, it is little but if I can fix it will be better. :slight_smile:
In my home I would like to work using my big external monitor instead of the internal one but when i plug in the HDMI cable the external monitor remains black.

IF i plug in the monitor (HDMI) before the boot, the KDE shows me the two monitor (internal and external), but IF I plug the monitor after the boot then nothing happens.
BUT if i open the terminal and send the command "inxi -Fxxx" then the monitor blinks one time and then it start to work perfectly as in the "boot scenario".
It seems like only after the command inix starts to collect the hardware info that the system notices the monitor.
Any idea why? Something that I can try to fix that behaviour?
Thank you.
