Hello
I need to install linux on my pc (for school) and i tried to install multiple distro but everytimes i couldn't use my HDMI port.
I tried with Ubuntu (18 and 19), Linux Mint, Kubuntu and Manjaro.
I really need help to solve this problem right now i have Manjaro xfce who is install.
I think it's due to the HDMI port who must be connected to my graphics card but i'm not an pro

My Pc : hp pavilion power laptop 15-cb0xx
I7 770 HQ with Intel HD graphics 630
Nvidia Geforce GTX 1050 Ti

I found this website that looks like it is probably your computer. It is their photo shown below. From the photo, it looks like you may have a "hardware toggle" for your video with the F4 key. If this is true, you first need your HDMI monitor plugged in, then hit the Fn + F4 keys to "toggle" between your HDMI and your laptop screen.
