HDMI Troubles on startup

Post by BFoGvDo » Mon May 14, 2018 5:18 pm

Hi, I got some troubles with my HDMI Port, I have 2 graphic cards :

Code: Select all

Graphics:  Card-1: Intel Skylake Integrated Graphics bus-ID: 00:02.0
           Card-2: NVIDIA GM107M [GeForce GTX 950M] bus-ID: 01:00.0
           Display Server: X.Org 1.18.4 drivers: (unloaded: fbdev,vesa)
           Resolution: 1920x1080@60.06hz
           GLX Renderer: Mesa DRI Intel HD Graphics 530 (Skylake GT2)
           GLX Version: 3.0 Mesa 17.2.8 Direct Rendering: Yes
           
HDMI Display works only when I set the graphic card to the Nvidia one, but the biggest problem is that if I start my PC with the HDMI Port plugged in, the graphics does strange things, icon will be very small, impossible to read the inscriptions... But if I startup without HDMI and then plug in when the PC is on the desktop, everything works properly, does anyone have an idea ?

Thanks in advance.

EDIT : I'm using KDE

Code: Select all

gksudo xed /etc/default/grub 
xed being your text editor
Edit this line

Code: Select all

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
and change it to

Code: Select all

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset"
Save and exit.
Run in termnal

Thanks for the quick reply, I did that, now my PC is lagging ^^' I can't change my graphics to the Nvidia one, because it's look like Nvidia manager did not start up and I can't get the previous display I add inside the Nvidia software.
Did you have this problem ? I will try to remove what you told me to do, then change the graphics to the Nvidia card and apply your changes.

Remove the edit to Grub reverting back to its original state.

Provide the results of the following commands

Code: Select all

inxi -Fxz

Code: Select all

dpkg -l | grep nvidia*

Note: If you still cannot boot try one of the following solutions:

Try with "nouveau.noaccel=1" instead of "nomodeset".
Use the "Compatibility mode" to boot and install Linux Mint.
After the installation, use "Advanced Options" -> "Recovery mode" from the boot menu and choose "resume".
