Lenovo ThinkPad T14 Gen 3 external monitor hdmi not detected

| Computers and stuff

One major issue I had with my nice new laptop was that for some weird reason I could not hook up an external monitor via HDMI. After searching around everywhere for a solution, this is what worked for me:

$ sudo fwupdmgr get-updates
$ sudo fwupdmgr update

During the BIOS update, your computer will be rebooted twice. In total it takes about ten minutes to complete. Be patient, the wait is worth it. Enjoy!

Lenovo forum: Thinkpad T14 Gen 3 has no available HDMI ports under Linux.
