Re: Screen resolution limited

So it appears that the X.Org X display server won’t allow the 2560x1440 at 60 Hz refresh rate to be used but will allow a 50 Hz rate. Restore the xorg.conf file: sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf.old /etc/X11/xorg.conf Log out and back in. Open the Display program and set the correct resolutions. You can m...

Re: Screen resolution limited

The xorg.conf file will have to be used, along with a script to use when changing GPUs.

One question. When you previously used that config file, was the 2560x1440 resolution in effect after logging out and back in, or did you have to enable that resolution in the Display program?

Rename the xorg.conf file: sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.old Create the 20-monitor.conf file again: sudo touch /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-nvidia.conf Open the file for editing: xed admin:///usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-nvidia.conf Add these lines: Section "Monitor" Identifier "Mon...

Re: Screen resolution limited

We are not done yet. That xorg.conf file has to be removed when you switch to the Intel GPU. I will post some additional info shortly.

Re: Screen resolution limited

Does using this command correct the resolution:
xrandr --output LVDS-1-1 --mode 1366x768 --rate 60

If you have not made any changes or restarted since your last post, then upload the Xorg.0.log.old file, not Xorg.0.log : cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log.old | nc termbin.com 9999 Then do the steps below in a separate post.

These lines from the log explain why the 2560x1440 mode was not used. The PixelClock for that mode is too high.

Re: Monitor config lost after reboot

If you change the monitor settings in the Display program, then they should be saved in the monitors.xml file. If you make the changes in NVIDIA X Server Settings, then you need to open the Display program and click the Apply button.

Re: Screen resolution limited

Right now the monitor is connected to the VGA port. The EDID info lists a 1920x1080 maximum resolution. Would you connect the monitor to the HDMI port and post the output of xrandr --prop I assume the monitor brand is BenQ ? What is the model number? Extracted contents: header: 00 ff ff ff ff ff ff ...

Re: New build, need advice for graphics card

I need to choose a video card that will do the job without going overboard. I have been looking at 1050's and 1060's. I'm trying to keep price down without compromising to the point of being disappointed. I have an old 550ti now and it won't handle the 4k monitor. It looks like the GeForce GTX 750 ...

Re: How to remove a dead shortcut in the whisker menu.

Open the File Manager and go to .local/share/applications (a hidden folder). Look for a file named
Master PDF Editor 4.desktop. First try renaming it to Master PDF Editor 4.desktop.old.
Check in the menu. If there are no problems, then delete it.

Re: NVidia 9600GT - loudy/too fast fan

I got the same result as you for Mint 19.2. I haven’t tested the sudo Xorg :0 -configure (or: sudo X :0 -configure ) command in a while, so something must have changed. However, when I type X -help in tty1, the output says: use: X [:<display>] [option] -configure probe for devices and write an xorg....
