Zorin OS 17.1 Gray screen

I installed Zorin OS 17.1 on my laptop but I have my laptop screen connected to my monitor with a displayport and I use the monitor as the primary display, but when I try to boot Zorin OS it just ends up in gray screen on both screens and I can't do anything so I need to reboot it and unplug my monitor so I can use Zorin OS. (I can plug in my monitor again after it's done loading) Does somebody know a fix for this because it's pretty annoying.

Hi, and welcome!

Can you please enter this command on the Terminal?

sudo lshw -C video

I did and this is what I got:

Did you accidently click the "Solution" flag under zenzen post #2, which just asked you to enter:

Did you manage to solve this?

My first thought was that some driver must be missing until the operating system boots entirely, but I don't see anything unusual on your graphics controller.

It just worked after a bit idk why and I'm not using Zorin rn bc I can't play games like Brawlhalla and Roblox.
