I am on an MSI GS63VR Stealth Pro and have just tried to connect an external monitor to my laptop via HDMI.

The monitor runs when i boot through windows (system is dual OS) and also runs of a raspberry pi I had lying around.

When I try to run it on my linux mint OS it is not recognised.

Driver manager has nvidia-390, nvidia-430 and nvidia-435 drivers.

I am fairly new to linux so anything that may seem straight forward to you may not be obvious to me, so any and all suggestions welcome!


Wich version did you use ? Cinnamon,MATE, XFCE ?

Does the 'Display' (translated, in my french version it is 'Affichage') setting show the monitor ? enter image description here

  • Cinnamon (or maybe its Tina now with updates?). The display GUI does not show the monitor.

  • (Small detail, Tina is the release, Cinnamon is the edition) So it seems that the drivers does not recognize the hardware. Did you know wich graphics card is used ?

  • Following 'laptopmedia.com/laptop-specs/msi-gs63vr-7rf-stealth-pro' , there is a 'NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060', so start the 'Drivers' program, and install the recommended driver from Nvidia. Post another question or edit, explaining release and edition for specific help, I use MATE edition, who is maybe different
