External Monitor Hybrid GPU

Briefly describe your issue below:

When trying to use a secondary monitor over HDMI the monitor is not detected. Tried with both nvidia and nouveau drivers, the only way I got it to show a brief splash screen was using the latter. I’ve done some pretty extensive research through other topics, but I don’t have enough experience with xorg to really find the problem.

What version of Parrot are you running? (include version (e.g. 4.6), edition(e.g. Home//KDE/OVA, etc.), and architecture (currently we only support amd64)

Parrot 4.10 x86_64 5.7.0-2parrot2-amd64

What method did you use to install Parrot? (Debian Standard / Debian GTK / parrot-experimental)

Boot ever live USB then install through GTK

Configured to multiboot with other systems? (yes / no)
