No clue why, but my computer crapped out after playing TF2, so I looked online. X.org couldn't find displays, so I did what a person said and they said reinstall the drivers for the GPU (GeForce 210). I uninstall them, reboot, and the GUI works as normal, but at 800x600 with no options to change. I install the drivers again (nvidia-340) and reboot. Now I'm back to square one.

Can someone help?

  • Ctrl+Alt+F1(F1 to F6) and then enter this command 'lspci -k | grep -EA2 'VGA|3D' ' What is the output? – Ashu Mar 12 '16 at 23:38
  • What did this do? It showed my GPU and showed the kernel driver in use is "Nvidia". – F0rZ3r0 Mar 12 '16 at 23:40
  • Full output please. You can edit the question if needed. – Ashu Mar 12 '16 at 23:41

Press Ctrl+Alt+F2 to deactivate the interface and run:

sudo startx
