Re: Alienware 17 R1 Linux Mint 19.1. Cannot change to 120Hz refresh rate in Nvidia settings. Screen black/blinking non s

That Xorg.0.log file does not have the info I’m looking for. It should have a lot more lines. It shows the xorg.conf file is being used: [ 53.570] (==) Using config file: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf" But the line Option "ModeDebug" "true" is not listed.

Re: Dual Monitor black and boot only with nomodeset

You can try the firmware in the rv2/ folder, but I’m not sure it will work with your APU. AMDs system for naming files can be confusing. There are 12 files. 2 are new: si58_mc.bin and when you click on the rv2/ folder: raven2_gpu_info.bin and 5 of them are newer versions of existing files. Click on ...

In my last post, I mistakenly asked for the brand and model number of the monitor, but you have a laptop. 1. Were you able to get the 120 Hz refresh rate in Windows? 2. I extracted the info from the laptop display panel's EDID and got these modes for 1920x1080, but the refresh rate is not listed, bu...

Re: Dual Monitor black and boot only with nomodeset

1. When you previously added the padoka PPA , did you install both the Mesa and xserver-xorg-video-amdgpu packages? 2. Before doing these tests, disable IOMMU in the BIOS, if it is enabled, and don’t use nomodeset . You can test kernel parameters by editing the kernel command line. The effect will o...

Re: blank screen after login on LM19.1 with amdgpu-pro-18.50 driver

The amdgpu-pro driver installation log looks fine. The Xorg.0.log also shows no problems with that driver, but these lines are at the end, which are probably related to your problem: [ 113.814] (II) event1 - Power Button: device removed [ 113.828] (II) event0 - Power Button: device removed [ 113.844...

They will still show as separate displays in Nvidia Settings or the Display program but the X.org X Display Server will see them as one wide ...

Re: Install multiple monitors with different resolutions

You need to post some additional info. Open the Terminal, use these commands and post the output:

What is the brand and model number of the monitor, and is it connected using any adapter or switch.

Re: Mint 19.1 (Tessa), Software Rendering Mode. Nvidia Geforce 970

Your system has Secure Boot enabled. This prevents the Nvidia driver from loading. Either disable Secure Boot in the BIOS, or if you want it enabled for an added layer of security, then the Nvidia kernel modules that were built during the Nvidia driver installation will need to be signed. Many distr...

Re: New to Linux Mint | Unknown Monitor Problem.

It looks like the source of the problem was that the 418.56 driver does not support the GTX 550 Ti , so it should not have been listed in Driver Manager, even after adding a PPA. Did you use the command sudo apt install nvidia-driver-418 to install it? The 390 driver series supports your video card.

That solves half of the problem, but not what happened when you tried installing the Nvidia driver. I suggest not installing the 418.56 driver next time.
