Nvidia resolution stuck at 960x540~50Hz

– Please Write here your help request, –

Greetings. Im new to parrot os and was just getting started with it. I installed Nvidia drivers from the .run file from the official website of Nvidia. Because the “sudo apt install nvidia-driver” didnt work and nvidia-smi wouldnt open. Now the drivers are installed and Nvidia-smi opens too, but the resolution is stuck at 960x540 and goes no higher than that. My monitor supports 1280x1024, and my nvidia gpu is Nvidia geforce GT 620 1 gigs.

Hello. nvidia-driver doesn’t contain all drivers for all nvidia devices. Because you are using Gefore GT 620, you have to install nvidia-legacy-390xx-driver
