    So basically my OS froze when I was browsing the web, so I had to hard reset it by plugging out the battery and power cable.
    Now all of sudden after I've turned it on and plugged in the HDMI cable again the monitor doesn't detect the input at all.

    Did you change your Ubuntu version when restarting, maybe you updated? I've seen a few people complain about this on AskUbuntu when using the latest LTS release. (18.04)

    You're connecting via HTML (Input, Ubuntu side)? Either way, you could try flipping the broken monitor's input over to HDMI/VGA/DVI (whatever you're using) if you haven't already, forcing the signal to show up. I also heard some people fixing it by re-mirroring the external monitor. Don't use Ubuntu so couldn't tell you where this is, but a google search should help.

    Oh yeah, another thing is, are you sure the external monitor works? I know you probably think it does but try it on another device or as your primary monitor, and ensure it's all good.

    It does work, I've been using it for the past 2 months and 6 hours today, lol.
    Thanks for it, but your suggestion didn't work :/

    Seems like I'm not the only one having problems on Ubuntu Budgie 18.04

    Yeah Ubuntu 18.04 is pretty unstable from what I've heard.

    Unfortunately it's on my work laptop, so it kinda sucks.
