Nvidia Drivers

Post by Djinn » Sat Aug 24, 2019 12:19 pm

New to linux, recently installed Mint. I've found lots of tutorials showing how to install the nvidia drivers so they must work.
But I've had this issue in elementary and now Mint. When I install the nvidia 430 driver, linux stops being able to detect my second screen and my resolution is stuck at 1074x768.

I tried reverting back to the open source driver and using an older nvidia version like 390, but no luck, just perma stuck with one ugly screen.
Help is appreciated

Thanks but no.
The installation isn't the problem, the problem is after it's installed.
