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:

  1. I added a PPA ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa. Updated nvidia-352 via this PPA. Rebooted. Did not help.
  2. I switched to nvidia-361 in this PPA. Rebooted. Did not work.
