Needed to change the primary monitor on my laptop when using an external monitor.

Probably Related to my Ethernet Trouble, the headphone jack on my new laptop mysteriously stopped working.

Running the following, along with a shutdown/startup cycle fixed the issue. Seems it was related to my card not being detected properly

echo "options snd-hda-intel model=asus" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf



My ethernet device on my new asus laptop suddenly showed up as cable not plugged in! But it most certainly was plugged in, and a boot into windows showed it worked. I finally got it working by running the following:

ethtool -s p3p1 autoneg off

where p3p1 is the device name.. used to be eth0
