I switched to NVIDIA drivers in Linux Mint 17.3 Cinnamon via Driver Manager in order to be able to play games. I am on NVIDIA 750M. The problem is, when I try to connect the second screen via DisplayPort (with resolution 2560x1440), both screens are turning on/off. This does not happen when I use Intel graphics.
Here is what I tried:
- I added a PPA
nvidia-352via this PPA. Rebooted. Did not help.
- I switched to
nvidia-361in this PPA. Rebooted. Did not work.
