Dual Monitor fails to work

I have a laptop with a RTX 3050. I tried installing with Nvidia Drivers and after the system update. Dual Monitor is not working.

Should I choose Install with Open Drivers or Install with Nvidia Drivers during installation from iso file

How should I install Nvidia Drivers from this below link

Note : Dual Monitor is not working in the latest iso of Garuda Linux Dra460nized

If you are able to get your installation up with the proprietary drivers option, that is most likely the best place to start.

From there, please post the output of garuda-inxi and provide as much information as possible about the monitor setup you are trying to configure (the more details the better).
