Advice and Questions

So I'm still a little bit of a noob when it comes to Linux but I can learn fast. I have been using Ubuntu but I'm getting tired of everything being programmed in a way that making some changes kill the system. Let alone no matter what I do it won't use the correct driver for my video card. So here is my question.

I have a Dell XPS 1330. I use the HDMI output for a second monitor because no matter how many motherboards Dell gives me the VGA causes issues with external monitors and flickering. Ubuntu is unable to properly display on it. I like the Enlightenment WM and have been looking for a distro that specifically uses it as their default WM. Besides Elive all the other distros appear to be Ubuntu derivatives. Does any know if Elive will detect the HDMI port and properly display on it either as a second monitor or primary monitor. My laptop has the Intel X3100 integrated graphics card.
