Re: Dim Display on Dell 3535 when on battery

Greetings to all of you. I have an issue with screen brightness on a Dell 3535 that I purchased a week ago, and was promptly loaded with Mint Cinnamon 21.3. Your computer has a 7000 series Ryzen. Please upgrade to the 6.5 kernel in Update Manager to get better support for your computer. Instruction...

Re: Hibernate stuck on, and not shutting off computer

Thank you, that fixed it!I thought automatic updates would automatically update the kernel too. They will upDATE the kernel. They will not upGRADE you to a newer kernel series. Going from 5.15 to 6.5 is changing the kernel series. How do i mark my issue as solved? Please go to your first post in th...

Re: 165hz option not available

That seems like a bug to me (even if just a small "paper cut" bug). If the system is in Nvidia/performance mode, then it shouldn't tell the user that the Intel GPU is the "Graphics card" just because that was the first thing it found in lspci. I asked the following question: Whi...

Re: 165hz option not available

should this say Nvidia GPU if its the loaded gpu? https://i.imgur.com/yNghVQG.png No. As I already explained, your computer does not have a MUX switch which means regardless of which GPU is rendering, Intel will always be the GPU which displays. Therefore, Intel will show as the GPU. This is an art...

That looks like I would expect to see for On-Demand mode. I think you are all set.

I'm not aware the order of the modes changes in the applet. The mode currently in use is the one highlighted/bolded.

Intel-Powersave is what is showing in the tray icon? If so, change it to On-Demand mode.

Let's try getting rid of some of the 545 packages with

Code: Select all

apt remove nvidia-driver-545
and then

Code: Select all

apt autoremove
If that doesn't work, let's just try installing the 535 driver.

Code: Select all

apt install nvidia-driver-535

Re: 165hz option not available

Ok i've booted into 6.5 sudo apt-get purge *nvidia* weird, this returns no matches found: *nvidia* and dpkg -l | grep -i nvidia returns the same list as before That is weird. Will Driver Manager let you switch to the nouveau driver? Try that and after you reboot run dpkg -l | grep -i nvidia again.

Re: 165hz option not available

I think I'd rather be on the most recent kernel and clean up the Nvidia drivers. Go ahead and boot into the 6.5 kernel. Remove all nvidia packages by running sudo apt-get purge *nvidia* That likely will not remove all the packages, but it should remove most of them. Post the output of dpkg -l | gre...
