I installed Fedora on a Sony VAIO laptop and want to connect it to an external monitor. The HDMI port doesn't to not output and my laptop is not seeing that there is another monitor. BIOS also doesn't show on the other monitor, just the laptop. The graphics is an Intel HD Graphics 4000. Anything I can do to get this to work?

Did you try with arandr? If it is not installed install it with sudo dnf install arandr and start it in a terminal as normal user with arandr. Then you can configure your outputs.

Most laptop have a keyboard button that toggles the display to the external monitor. also, check the hdmi cable, and make sure the external monitor is powered on.

I figured out what the problem was. In the grub file, remove nomode set completely. This worked for and it even gave me animations I didn't know I had!
