Linuxmint 19.3 doesn't recognize my actual monitor, it acts as if I've got a 46" screen, which I don't have. Hence, it let me see just a portion of the entire screen. I've tried to purge nvidia drivers (having big issues with dependencies) and reinstall them, but it didn't work.

That's the Display menu: enter image description here

That's the portion of screen I can see: enter image description here

  • Avolites Ltd doesn't seem to manufacture computer monitors, but various kinds of AV equipment. Is your computer directly plugged into the monitor, or is there some kind of signal switching/processing box in between? If the monitor (or a signal processing box, if applicable) has any kind of overscan/underscan setting, try switching it to "underscan" to see if it helps. – telcoM Jun 20 '20 at 10:15
  • Yes, I've had to adjust the aspect of the TV (it is a TV, not a monitor): from 16:9 to "Point to Point". – Antonio Jun 20 '20 at 13:52

I've just had to adjust the aspect of the TV, used as a monitor, from 16:9 to Point to Point. I don't think that menu has the same entries for each TV. It solves my problem.

  • Yes. TVs often have multiple aspect ratio/zoom settings, and for using them as a computer display, you'll normally want whichever mode results in 1:1 mapping between the input signal at the display's native resolution and the actual pixels on the screen. Sounds like your TV's Point to Point is exactly that. – telcoM Jun 20 '20 at 14:25
