    How can I increase the display resolution of my laptop?

    Hello,

    I installed Ubuntu in my HP Pavilion M1X71UA (hp support page) and I haven't been able to set the display resolution to 1920 x 1080 as I had it in Windows.

    I followed the steps in this askubuntu post, these is the output;

    $ cvt 1920 1080 60
    # 1920x1080 59.96 Hz (CVT 2.07M9) hsync: 67.16 kHz; pclk: 173.00 MHz
    Modeline "1920x1080_60.00" 173.00 1920 2048 2248 2576 1080 1083 1088 1120 -hsync +vsync

    $ xrandr --newmode "1920x1080" 173.00 1920 2048 2248 2576 1080 1083 1088 1120 -hsync +vsync

    $ xrandr
    Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1600 x 900, maximum 16384 x 16384
    eDP connected primary 1600x900+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 382mm x 215mm

    800x600 60.00

    1920x1080 (0x6cb) 173.000MHz -HSync
    h: width 1920 start 2048 end 2248 total 2576 skew 0 clock 67.16KHz
    v: height 1080 start 1083 end 1088 total 1120 clock 59.96Hz

    $ xrandr --addmode eDP "1920x1080"

    The screen blinks and in Settings > Devices > Display I see the new 1920 x 1080 screen resolution, but if I select it the screen goes black and it comes back after a while.

    Am I doing something wrong? I have tried a few times but I haven't been able to increase the display resolution yet.

    Thank you!

    Re: How can I increase the display resolution of my laptop?

    I don't know much about the AMDGPU drivers so other users might be able to give more precise advice.

    If you don't get other answers I suggest that you do a fresh install of 19.10. The AMD drivers are in fast development and it's worth the effort to try to see what the new versions bring.
