I did a fresh install of Lubuntu 20.04, I had to use "graphic safe mode". My monitor is showing the boot screen / BIOS. If I add nomodeset to GRUB, it works with 800x600 resolution. It's a touchscreen with built in PC from RC Stars.

I installed TeamViewer when using "nomodeset". The monitor is completely black but I can reach the computer through TeamViewer.

Answers for this questions I've found after a day of googling doesn't help and the answers is quite similar.

xrandr --output HDMI1 --auto --right-of eDP1

Doesn't do anything

uname -a

sudo xrandr --addmode HDMI1 1920x1080

xrandr: cannot find mode "1920x1080"

How do I troubleshoot to find out the problem? Windows installation works, but none of the Ubuntu distros/versions I've tried has worked
