First of all, this is my first post on this forum. Been here quite a few times before but never encountered anything that I couldn't fix with a little help from Google. This time around however, I can't seem to get any further, so I decided to create an account here and give it a go.
It all started a few days ago when my Mint 18.3 Cinnamon crashed. I hadn't installed anything new or anything. It just crashed. I rebooted the system (power button) and when I log back in, I'm stuck in 640x480 mode. I've installed and reinstalled the nvidia-390 driver more times than the number of fingers that I possess. Tried to reset the resolution using xrandr, but to no avail. This is the output of my
Code: Select all
Card: NVIDIA GF110 [GeForce GTX 580] Display Server: X.Org 1.18.4 driver: nvidia Resolution email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org GLX Renderer: GeForce GTX 580/PCIe/SSE2 GLX Version: 4.6.0 NVIDIA 390.59
I have used nvidia-xconfig to try to recreate the /etx/X11/xorg.conf file, nothing happens. If it's any help, the "gpu-manager" is inactive (dead). I don't know what it is or if it was active before or not, but I can't seem to get it to work either. (Don't even know if that's the main issue).
The monitor and graphics card do support 1920x1080. I've run mint for months on this machine without any problems.
Last but not least, i have a TV hooked up to the graphics card as well, but I tried unplugging it and plugging it ba... you know the drill. Nothing works.
What to do guys? Thanks in advance! By the way, I would love it if there was a way to fix this without reinstalling the OS.
