Display port resolution stuck at 640x480

hello Garuda Linux Team

I have connected my two monitors , both monitors have same resolution , but i recognize that dp port screen is stuck at 640x480 resolution ,
By taking help from internet i have turned my resolution correctly but thats dont work after reboot and the picture quality after using custom resolution is not good.
And at the time of rebooting , my both monitors switched to the small resolution.

Can we have your inxi -Faz

It would be nice to be a bit more specific here...


the resolution dont remain same after reboot and the graphics quality is not looks like
as it has to be.(it is blury)(it is only happening with the dp port)

Have you already checked the Arch wiki?


Troubleshooting graphics issues is really not something I'm great at, but I noticed a couple of things that might be worth altering.

Monitor-2: HDMI-A-0 res: 1366x768:
This^^^ seems an odd resolution to choose unless you were using an older laptop (and you're not).

Have you tried swapping the cabling for monitor 1 & 2?

I would suggest running both monitors with the same type of cabling (and resolution) if possible). Using either 2 HDMI cables, or 2 DP cables can sometimes help eliminate issues (if that is supported).

Good luck.


i tired swapping cables , both monitors are working with hdmi fine, but my graphic has only 1 hdmi port and 3 dispaly port.
