The native resolution of your monitor is detected properly, what is the brand and model ?
Hi It's an Acer K222 LCD model and has no problem displaying 1080x1920 with my previous AMD based GPU or in windows.
It might not work but would installing a more recent Nvidia driver help do you think?

Typo, I meant not detected properly

You can try, that won't hurt. The monitor is connected to the Nvida DVI port ?
Add the graphics-drivers ppa:

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa
apt update
Then use the Driver Manager utility to install the recommended driver and reboot.

Hi, I have installed the latest drive but it has not made any difference to the resolution. The monitor is connected to the DVI port.
Is it possible to manually configure things?

Don't know, native resolution is usually detected. Post the resolutions detected:

Code: Select all

xrandr

The monitor resolution is not detected correctly. You may try to disable kernel mode setting and enable nvidia drm mode setting.
At startup hold down the shift key in case the grub menu doesn't show up by default. On first menu entry press the "e" key to edit the kernel boot parameters and add below parameters next to "quiet splash" to read:

Code: Select all

quiet splash nomodeset nvidia-drm.modeset=1
Press F10 to boot.

Hi, Unfortunately having tried to locate the command in various places it has not worked. I always end up with the same lower resolution options.

When powering on the computer and while holding down the shift key does the grub menu shows up ?
See this video referring to a different issue illustrating how to edit the boot parameters:

Hi,
The grub menu comes up OK and e opens the settings. The video is very useful. The 'Quiet splash' phrase is already in the configuration and I have added the full line "quiet splash...modeset=1" after it. I have also tried some other variations of locations as well as taking out the first instance of 'quiet splash' before the new line but none of them seem to work. Perhaps I am putting the phrase in the wrong location although I think I have tried most places.
Is there a way to copy the parameters to a file to have a look at them?

I should say as well. Thank you for your patience and perseverance.

Regards Steve

Said otherwise replace the "quiet splash" part of the line with "quiet splash nomodeset nvidia-drm.modeset=1"

Hi
I replaced 'quiet splash' with 'quiet splash nomodeset nvidia-drm.modeset=1' and booted up.
It didn't make any difference unfortunately. And the monitor is still not detected correctly.
On my other PC which is running Mint 18.3 and uses 'xserver-org-video-nouveau' the monitor is correctly identified as an Acer 22" monitor. If I changed to the Nvidia driver I have the same low resolution problem. In the case of that PC the GPU is an MSI GTX 660. Editing the parameters on this PC also didn't make any difference when running the Nvidia driver.

I can't think of why it's not working.

Don't know either. Can't you try with a different monitor ?

Re: Low resolution with Nvidia drivers

Post by steveis2 » Sat Sep 22, 2018 1:15 pm

Hi, I have discovered that if I launch NVIDIA X server settings advanced and manually insert 1920x1080 into view port in , view port out and Panning in the advanced settings I can attain the 1920x1080 resolution. However it causes a problem with desktop images as they appear as tiled no matter what you do. Also I don't know how sustainable this arrangement is or whether it's storing up problems for the future.

Regards Steve

On my other PC which is running Mint 18.3 and uses 'xserver-org-video-nouveau' the monitor is correctly identified as an Acer 22" monitor.
If I changed to the Nvidia driver I have the same low resolution problem. In the case of that PC the GPU is an MSI GTX 660. Editing the parameters on this PC also didn't make any difference when running the Nvidia driver.

The monitor's EDID (monitor's capabilities firmware) is buggy, or Nvidia bug with that monitor, or hardware issue. You may try a different dvi cable or different monitor when available. An alternative would consist in setting up a manual modeline for that monitor but I have no background in this area.

Hi, I have a good idea of what I need to do which is more than I started with.

Thanks for all your advice.

In the end I got it working but I reinstalled linux to get a fresh start. That might not be necessary but it felt like a last resort.
I then did the following


Install linux you will boot into software rendering and 1920x1080
Update the system and reboot
Update the kernel and reboot
Install the Read-edid and Edid-decode programs from software manager
Execute sudo get-edid > EDID.bin in your home folder. EDID.bin should appear which saves the monitor EDID.
Use driver manager to select a change to the Nvidia driver and reboot.
Once in the nvidia environment you will find that you have only 1360x768 resolution
Open the Nvidia Server Settings programme and select X Server Display Configuration on left hand side. Then use the Save to X configuration button to save the configuration. You will need to save it to /etc/X11 as xorg.conf
Reboot
Go to to /etc/X11 and execute sudo xed xorg.conf to edit xorg.conf
In the device section of xorg.conf add Option “CustomEDID” “string/EDID.bin” where string is the path to the folder you saved EDID.bin in. In my case it was “/home/chico/EDID.bin”. Save the changes to xorg.conf.
Reboot and it might work ok
You might need to open xorg.conf again and insert the actual Horizontal and vertical frequency ranges of your particular monitor and reboot.

Hi, This worked in LM18.3 but does not seem to work in LM19.

Just one other thing. REMEMBER to never exceed the maximum resolution given by your screen manufacturers specs even if the software appears to offer higher ones.
