Debian Multimedia :: NVidia Driver Not Working With External Monitor?

Mar 15, 2010

I have a Dell XPS M1330, which has a GeForce 8400M GS GPU. The binary (sigh) nVidia driver installed is version 190.53 (installed by sgfxi). This is working well: glxgears gives me about 2600 FPS and compiz is happy.An old Philips 170B is attached by VGA cable. I was looking to set up a method of switching resolution upon connecting to the monitor when working at the desk, since I don't like the 1280x800 resolution of the laptop.

nfortunately, I can't get any output on the external monitor. It does work under Ubuntu, which installed the 180 series binary driver. (Going to an earlier driver is an option, but I want to understand the problem.) Bottom line, I want to work under Debian.As far as I know, nVidia's proprietary driver doesn't support xrandr. At any rate, with he external 170B monitor attached and turned on, I get the following:$ xrandr -qScreen 0: minimum 320 x 175, current 1280 x 800, maximum 1280 x 800default connected 1280x800+0+0 0mm x 0mm

1280x80050.0*
1024x76851.052.0
960x540 53.0

General :: Toshiba Tecra M2S With NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5200 Driving Dell External Monitor Quits Working

Mar 29, 2010

I've been trying to get it to work on my laptop off and on for several years now, experimenting first with Redhat (version 6.1, I think) and now trying with Ubuntu 9.04. I've done a full install using the entire hard drive (no dual boot). So I'm trying it for real this time. I'm having a problem with my video drivers. The video is ok (not great) and I don't seem to have any options to adjust it.

When I go into system > preferences > display, I see monitor "unknown", set at 1024x768 with a 75 Hz refresh. If I click on "detect monitors" nothing happens. It says under system > administration > hardware drivers that "no proprietary drivers are in use on this system". I've got two options:

[code]...

For the first part of boot, I have access, but then when it comes up into Ubuntu, the big monitor (a Dell 2500, I think, plugged into the stock Toshiba docking station via DVI) quits working, and all I have is a dim picture (dark, like something's sapping power from it) on the laptop display.....

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Nvidia TwinView External Monitor Refresh Rate Locked?

Mar 26, 2011

I'm trying to use an external monitor to watch movies on my linux box (kubuntu maverick) but it results always out of sync. TV-out refresh rate is locked as you can see on the image i've attached right here. This is the output of the nvidia-settings query about the variable RefreshRate:

Code:
Attribute 'RefreshRate' (DeepBlue:0.0; display device: CRT-0): 60.02 Hz.
'RefreshRate' is an integer attribute.
'RefreshRate' is a read-only attribute.
'RefreshRate' is display device specific.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Black Screen On Laptop's External Monitor When Specifying Vesa Driver In Xorg

Jan 16, 2010

I have an Asus z9100 laptop with an Intel 855GM integrated graphics chip, which is running Karmic (the purpose of the laptop is to be a MythTV frontend so my understanding is that it needs to run 9.x in order to connect to the MythTV 0.22 backend - I have installed and configured this using the installable Mythbuntu package) and the laptop is subject to this bug which causes random freezes:

[URL]

So, following advice for similar freezes I've seen, I have added the following options to my grub menu.lst on the kernel line:

nolapic nomodeset

and I have edited xorg.conf so that it makes use of the vesa driver instead of the Intel driver. This results in no freezes and if I wanted to watch Myth on the laptop screen I'd be squared away. However, the laptop has a damaged screen so the point was always to output the signal to an external monitor via its VGA out.

When I attach the external monitor and boot with the setup as described, the external monitor is never detected. But I noticed that if I remove the "nolapic nomodeset" from the kernel boot line, it is detected. However, signal is only output to it during the earliest part of boot (when the Ubuntu logo is in the center of the screen before the full-screen graphic with the animated progress line), after which the external monitor goes black and all the display output goes to the laptop screen. The external monitor power button is still lit up green as if it has been detected and is receiving signal, but it's just a black screen.

get the signal out to the external monitor after the initial part of the boot process, using the vesa driver? Here is the current state of my xorg.conf:

Code:
Section "Device"
Identifier "Configured Video Device"
Driver "vesa"
EndSection

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Updating NVidia Driver Not Working, Tried Manual, Not Working?

Sep 18, 2010

I installed it on a Dell Inspiron 531 with the GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 built in video card. From the recommend driver list I installed �NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver (version current) [Recommended

Well, turns out it should not have been recommended. I had restarted and all I got was a low res ubuntu logo and a boot right into a full screen terminal. Tried startx and got a no screens found, I look online for about an hour last night and decided to just reinstall, which takes a couple hours when installing all the packages.

I have done more research today and found to install the latest linux x64 driver from nVidias website, which I did, but it does not run. I followed some more instructions and it said to do a �sudo chmod +x <file>� which I did, and it starts to open and I get �You appear to be running an X server; please exit X before installing.�

I�m starting to get a little frustrated here, guess I�m just used to a lot of the ease of windows and assumed that something like installing a graphics card driver would be easy.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Getting Dual Monitor Support Working In Unity With NVIDIA?

Jun 21, 2011

I have an NVIDIA 9800 GTX. I have 2 DELL monitors connect to this card, one is a 24" and the other is 21".

I am unable to use Xinerama mode with Unity, because for some reason after logging in, I get no desktop interface, only background wallpaper, and I have to force reboot.

How can I setup dual monitors in Ubuntu using Unity properly? Note that I do NOT want to use TwinView, since this results in dead space around the smaller monitor.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Upgraded To 10.10 - Nvidia Driver Are Not Working

Nov 11, 2010

I upgraded to 10.10 from 10.04, and I noticed that the nvidia driver are not working all well as they did before.

Although I get the nvidia logo when X starts, the 3d part does not work well. For example using mplayer -vo gl does not work anymore. When I type glxinfo I get the x error of failed request badwindow message. More anonyingly flash will crash when going to fullscreen.

The 2d part of the drivers seem fine because xvinfo and -vo xv works fine.

Debian Multimedia :: Cannot Set External Monitor To Higher Resolutions

Jul 8, 2011

I recently got a new external monitor for my laptop, and connected them by VGA. This is what 'xrandr' tells me:

Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1440 x 900, maximum 4096 x 4096
LVDS1 connected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
1280x800 60.0 +
1024x768 60.0
800x600 60.3 56.2
640x480 59.9
VGA1 connected 1440x900+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 510mm x 290mm
1920x1080 60.0 +
1600x1200 60.0
1680x1050 60.0
1280x1024 75.0 60.0
1440x900 75.0 59.9*
1280x960 60.0
1280x800 59.8
1152x864 75.0
1024x768 75.1 70.1 60.0
832x624 74.6
800x600 72.2 75.0 60.3 56.2
640x480 72.8 75.0 66.7 60.0
720x400 70.1

However when I try to change to some of the higher resolutions, such as 1920x1080, all I get is a corrupted and flickering image. As indicated above, I am currently on 1440x900@59.9h,z but for some reason 1440x900@75hz doesn't work. The same seems to be true for 1280x1024. The three resolutions above that all cannot be selected properly. I tried setting the resolution to maximum in Windows XP and it worked, and my video games console can set it to 1080p, so I don't think there is anything wrong with the monitor. Is there anything I can do or is this some kind of bug or limitation of the graphics driver or something? The graphics chipset of the laptop is an Intel 945GM, which I believe should be capable of displaying 1920x1080. I am running debian unstable with what seems to be the most up to date version of xserver-xorg-video-intel.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Closed NVIDIA Driver Not Working / Solve This?

Feb 12, 2011

I'm trying to get a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.10 working with the closed Nvidia driver, as I would like to get the HDMI output working.

I have a Sony Vaio VPCCW18FX, with a Nvidia GT 230M graphics card. The open source nouveau driver works fine, but does not run smoothly. The only problem here is that it's needed to run with "nomodeset".

If i just activate the Proprietary Nvidia driver and reboot, it will hang after writing "Checking battery State [ok]". I have tried to add EDID from Windows partition, and here it hangs at a blank black/grey screen. I have tried hooking up an external display, no output on it either.

I am running the newest Nvidia driver from nvidia.com, version 260.19.44. The built in proprietary Nvidia driver does not work properly.

Debian Configuration :: Nvidia Driver Resolution Setting Not Working

Jun 5, 2011

I have installed the Nvidia drivers on my desktop using [URL] according to the Debian way. Everything seems to be fine except the resolution. The best it will let me choose is something like 600x480. I have searched and most of what is suggested around the web is to change xorg.conf. I have tried this using different setting suggested but nothing is working. I did not have a xorg.conf file so I created one with the setting suggested on the Debian wiki.

Debian Multimedia :: How To Keep Out Proprietary NVIDIA Driver

Feb 20, 2016

Debian Jessie kernel 3.16.0 AMD64. Legacy GeForce 66oo GT video card.

I just re-installed Jessie via Debian non-free DVD. When I run apt-get update && apt-get upgrade, the screen says to the effect :

"Before Nouveau can be used, must remove Nvidia config from xorg.conf and xorg.conf.d"

Is there a simple way to keep Nouveau and blacklist or prevent Nvidia driver from being automatically installed in the first place?

Debian Multimedia :: Nvidia Driver On 2 Kernels ?

Feb 10, 2010

Running debian sid. I have the Debian 2.6.32-trunk kernel installed and the liquorix kernel.

I use sgfxi to install the nvidia driver. Normally sgfxi allegedly strips out all prior nvidia, using both the nvidia uninstaller and purging any debian nvidia packages.

Today when I updated the liquorix kernel and reinstalled the drivers for the new kernel, it was still installed in the old kernel. Normally it is just installed in one kernel.

Graphics:
Card nVidia G96 [GeForce 9400 GT] X.Org 1.7.4 Res: 1280x1024@50.0hz

GLX Renderer GeForce 9400 GT/PCI/SSE2 GLX Version 3.2.0 NVIDIA 190.53 Direct Rendering Yes

I guess the questions is, is this a new feature or just some weird glitch? Also I only get the nvidia splash on the Debian kernel and not on the liquorix kernel.

Debian Multimedia :: Desktop Error After Nvidia Driver Install

Nov 8, 2015

Problem summary:

Error - "Oh no! Something has gone wrong." and "A problem has occurred and the system can't recover. Please log out and try again."

How to get back to original nouveau driver after failed nvidia driver install?

What probably happened was a wrong nVidia driver install from the repository.. Because never had any problems earlier, but after I installed some nVidia packages, I get this error.

I already tried to remove nvidia driver by
# aptitude purge nvidia-kernel-dkms nvidia-glx
It was successful.

Then I reinstalled Xorg Nouveau driver and all its denpendencies by
# aptitude install xserver-xorg-video-nouveau
It was also successful.

But problem still occurs..

Debian Multimedia :: Proprietary Nvidia Driver - High CPU Usage Xorg

Aug 7, 2015

I recently switched from jessie to stretch on both i encountered a jerky ui in gnome 3. after a longer research i noticed xorg consumes over 80% of my first cpu-core while moving a window. for testing purposes i switched back to the nouveau driver and there is no high cpu usage while moving a window, also the ui is smooth.

i tried 3 different nvidia driver: the one from the debian repository, the current stable and beta driver from the nvidia site. i noticed on all 3 the same problem.

Code: Select alldaniel@Daniel-PC:~$ glxinfo | grep rendering
direct rendering: Yes
    GL_NV_path_rendering, GL_NV_pixel_data_range, GL_NV_point_sprite,
    GL_NV_path_rendering, GL_NV_pixel_data_range, GL_NV_point_sprite,
    GL_NV_path_rendering, GL_NV_pixel_buffer_object, GL_NV_polygon_mode,

Hardware :: Nvidia - Preserve External Monitor Settings Between Reboots?

May 14, 2009

I recently installed Kubuntu 9.04 + Nvidia driver 180.44 on my Dell Latitude E6400 (1440x900) with NVIDIA Quadro NVS 160M. I have the G2410 1920x1080 external monitor. The monitor is connected via VGA. I am very pleased to have the monitor running at full resolution. However, the settings don't stay intact after rebooting.

If I have the monitor connected and turn on the the laptop, only the laptop screen is active. Then, I press Fn + F8 twice to switch to the external monitor which is always reset to 1440x900. After logging in I open Nvidia settings and switch the external monitor resolution to auto. There is a warning about Meta modes and I do auto fix. Then compositing is disabled, so I open system settings, turn off then turn back on desktop effect. Also, if I want to switch back to the laptop display, it stays stuck at 1920x1080 on the laptop.

Is there any way to set this up so it is automatically detected when the external monitor is plugged in and runs at the correct resolution? With my old M1330 and Intel X3100 graphics card, it would do this and was very convenient switching back and forth between the laptop display and external monitor.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Disable Secondary Monitor Quickly Other Than Loading Up Nvidia-settings And Disabling The Monitor Every Time?

Jun 29, 2010

Currently I have two 1920x1080 screens running in Twinview on my Geforce 275 graphics card. Want I want to do is a quick simple way of disabling my secondary monitor when playing video games or using xbmc to watch movies, etc. I've tried a few applets but they require the xandr function which I think Nvidia doesn't support.

Is there a way to disable this quickly other than loading up nvidia-settings and disabling the monitor everytime. I don't really want to use two seperate x sessions and xinerama due to the fact you can't use compositing.

Debian Hardware :: External Monitor As The Main Monitor For A Laptop

Sep 22, 2010

I recently installed Debian, using the amd64 Network Install .iso. I'm using XFCE4 as my desktop environment, and everything is working well... on my laptop's screen.

My desired setup is to have my laptop sitting on a well-ventilated shelf, closed, and to have an external monitor be my main monitor. I want this because I'm using my laptop as my "home" computer, so it never moves, and I don't like the keyboard/trackpad. My laptop has a VGA output, and I can get my desired setup on my Windows partition (not stating a preference ; just that the hardware CAN do what I want it to).

I've been working my way around the Internet for a few days, now, and I've got the commercial NVIDIA driver installed. If I run sudo nvidia-config --twinview I can get my external monitor to be part of the display, which is great, but it's part of a dual-screen monitor setup, which is not what I want at all, because (a) XFCE's multiple virtual desktops are good enough for me and (b) my graphics card is integrated, and I'm trying to squeeze every drop of performance out of my laptop that I can (1 gig of RAM; the less that my graphics card eats into it, the better). Plus, it'd be annoying to accidentally drop something on my laptop's screen, and then have to dig it out of the shelf in order to undo it. I'm not saying that I'm consistently clumsy, but I'd eventually end up doing it.

Fedora :: NVIDIA Bin Driver - Gnome3 - Dual Monitor ?

May 25, 2011

I have recently installed FC15 on my system. Dual monitor support seems to be broken with my setup. I am using the latest NVIDIA binary blob driver (270.41.19). I compiled my own kernel for it, version 2.6.39.

When gnome3 starts it almost manages to boot up, but then it crashes and gives me the option of logging out. I have my system booting into target 'multi-user.target' since I was doing some other stuff and I use `startx' to start gnome3. I tried running having X use xinerama and not use xinerama, both cause gnome3 to crash, albeit in different ways. Other than that I am running a stock install as far as I know.

If there are some logs I should be looking at for gnome3.

Ubuntu Installation :: Nvidia Driver 4 Tiny Screens On One Monitor?

Jun 25, 2010

This happened after ubuntu pushed an nvidia graphics update about a week ago, on upgrade I booted up into this:Obviously I had to take this picture with a camera, since a screenshot only showed one screen. It's perfectly usable like this, except that it's too small to read.I of course have tried 'sudo nvidia-xconfig', and a minimal xorg.conf:

Code:

Section "Device"
Identifier "Default Device"
Driver "nvidia"
EndSection

Along with purging and reinstalling all of the nvidia packages numerous times. I'm currently running on the VESA driver, which sucks. My chipset is a 9200M, but like I said, it worked perfectly before the last upgrade. In all my years of using linux and kubuntu, I've seen and fixed numerous nvidia driver errors, but I've never seen one this strange, usually it will run or not run.

Ubuntu :: Monitor Dims On Left Side / Unable To Install NVIDIA Driver

I was able to find a fix online, I followed the instructions, and Voila! It was fixed, so I knew it was not a hardware issue. I installed 11.04, and have the same dim screen issue, but I can't find the instructions that fixed it last time. I tried to download and install the latest driver from NVIDIA, and I get this error:

ERROR: You appear to be running an X server; please exit X before installing. For further details, please see the section INSTALLING THE NVIDIA DRIVER in the README available on the Linux driver download page at www.nvidia.com. If anyone has any fix for the dim screen
