Lenovo Y540 only 1920x1080 resolution

Post by Major_Kuprich »

Hello,

After installing Mint 19.3 I have only 1920x1080 resolution.
There are no alternative resolutions.

xrandr shows no alternatives:

Code: Select all

Screen 0: minimum 8 x 8, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 32767 x 32767
DP-0 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
DP-1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
DP-2 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
DP-3 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
DP-4 connected primary 1920x1080+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 344mm x 194mm
   1920x1080     60.03*+

        v: height  900 start  903 end  908 total  934           clock  59.95Hz
I've tried add new resolution (1600x900) but after running command:

Code: Select all

xrandr --addmode DP-4 1600x900_60.00
there is an error:

Code: Select all

X Error of failed request:  BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
Result of the inxi -Fx command:

You need to get a modeline first, e.g.

Code: Select all

andy@T432 ~ $ cvt 1600 900
# 1600x900 59.95 Hz (CVT 1.44M9) hsync: 55.99 kHz; pclk: 118.25 MHz
Modeline "1600x900_60.00"  118.25  1600 1696 1856 2112  900 903 908 934 -hsync +vsync
then

Code: Select all

 xrandr --newmode "1600x900_60.00"  118.25  1600 1696 1856 2112  900 903 908 934 -hsync +vsync
 xrandr --addmode DP-4 "1600x900_60.00"
 xrandr --output DP-4 --mode "1600x900_60.00"

The xrandr --newmode and xrandr --addmode commands only work with the open source drivers; nouveau, intel, modesetting, radeon and amdgpu; not the Nvidia driver.

1920x1080 is the native resolution, which gives the best image quality. Is that too small for your eyes?

Do you have a dual-boot with Windows?

Use this command and post the output: xrandr --verbose

thanks, I've learnt something. Apologies to the OP for pointing you in the wrong direction.

1920x1080 is too small resolution for me (on my old laptop I have 1366x768).
I haven't got dual boot with Windows, Linux is the only system on my pc.

Do this test using a 1280x720 resolution, which has the same aspect ratio as 1920x1080. Download the 1280x720-edid.zip file below, which contains the file 1280x720.bin. Right click on the downloaded file and select Extract Here.

1280x720-edid.zip
(271 Bytes) Downloaded 8 times

Use this command to create an xorg.conf file: sudo touch /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Open the file for editing: xed admin:///etc/X11/xorg.conf

Add these lines but change your-user-name to your actual user name:

Code: Select all

Section "Device"
   Identifier   "Device0"
   Driver   "nvidia"   			
   Option "CustomEDID" "DP-4:/home/your-user-name/Downloads/1280x720.bin" 
EndSection
Log out and back in.

If there is a problem getting back to the desktop, then press Ctrl+Alt+F1 to enter virtual console tty1. Use this command to remove the xorg.conf file and reboot: sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf; reboot

If that method works, then I can generate a 1600x900 edid file for you to use.

Major_Kuprich,

You are in the best possible hands with roblm, if he can't fix it, then probably no-one else can. In my opinion, he is the 'goto' person for any problems with screen resolution on this forum.

But if you want him to help you:
Still doesn't work.
There was a problem getting back to the desktop.
You need to be explicit about what went wrong. If there were any error messages then post them, describe exactly what went wrong. The more information you provide, the more likely he will be able to help you.

The same result as earlier.
After I created new xorg.conf file with Your suggestion I tried add new mode resolution (1600x900).
And the result is the same: X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes).
Then I logout, during this operation system hangs out, then I had to enter virtual console and remove xorg.conf file and reboot.

Still doesn't work.
There was a problem getting back to the desktop.
You need to be explicit about what went wrong. If there were any error messages then post them, describe exactly what went wrong. The more information you provide, the more likely he will be able to help you.
Ok I understand, but there is no more messages/errors I can describe.

Re: Lenovo Y540 only 1920x1080 resolution

Try using this xorg.conf file, which uses a standard mode instead of a reduced blanking mode:

Code: Select all

Section "Monitor"
   Identifier    "Monitor0"
   HorizSync       24.0 - 119.0	   
   VertRefresh     55.0 - 61.0
   Modeline "1600x900_60.00"  118.25  1600 1696 1856 2112  900 903 908 934 -hsync +vsync
EndSection

Section "Device"
   Identifier   "Device0"
   Driver   "nvidia"   			
   Option "UseEdidFreqs" "false"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
   Identifier   "Screen0"
   Device   "Device0"
   Monitor   "Monitor0"
   DefaultDepth   24
   Option "ModeValidation" "AllowNonEdidModes"
   Option "MetaModes" "DP-4:1600x900_60.00 +0+0"
EndSection

Nothing changes (the same steps causes same result):

Code: Select all

After I created new xorg.conf file with Your suggestion I tried add new mode resolution (1600x900).
And the result is the same: X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes).
Then I logout, during this operation system hangs out, then I had to enter virtual console and remove xorg.conf file and reboot.

I assume Windows was installed on your laptop when it was purchased? If yes, were you able to change to the 1600x900 resolution or any other?

Thank You very much for Your all help.

I assumed you had already tried using the Nvidia Settings utility. Most of the time, if the resolution is not listed in the Display program, then it’s not available in Nvidia Settings either. It’s still strange why one of the xorg.conf files didn’t work.

Here are my two cents: Laptops have usually one and only natural resolution (in your case 1920x1080). Setting any other resolution (even with the same aspect ratio) will cause a blurry view, most of the time.

There is an already mentioned console app "xrandr", which you can use to see a list of supported resolutions. And you can check one on the fly with:

Code: Select all

xrandr -s 1024x768
It seems you are looking for a way to increase the size of screen icons and fonts. If this is the case; please have a look at this thread too, for a few tips on screen scaling:

The picture of your Nvidia Settings shows a 1680x1050 resolution, which uses a 16:10 aspect ration instead of 16:9. Is a scaled 1600x900 resolution listed?

Thx, but screen settings only change size with double DPI, which makes most elements very large.
