I have an Nvidia GeForce GT 635, and I installed the drivers for it with ubuntu-drivers autoinstall, but now my screen resolution is off and can't be changed in the display subsection of the system settings. Specifically, my screen resolution is stuck at 1024x768 (with no other options presented) while my native resolution is 1920x1080.

Relevant lspci lines:

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GK208 [GeForce GT 635] (rev a1)
Subsystem: NVIDIA Corporation GK208 [GeForce GT 635]
Kernel modules: nvidiafb, nouveau, nvidia_367, nvidia_367_drm
01:00.1 Audio device: NVIDIA Corporation GK208 HDMI/DP Audio Controller (rev a1)

How can I change my display back to its native resolution?

  • Please edit your question and add output of lspci -k | grep -EA3 'VGA|3D|Display' terminal command. – Pilot6 Feb 8 '17 at 19:55

  • Disable Secure Boot in BIOS. – Pilot6 Feb 8 '17 at 19:59
  • @Pilot6: Could you give me an idea of why that's causing my system to have the problems its having? – Dan Feb 8 '17 at 20:01
