I need help with my screen, it only stays at 640x480

Hello, I come to ask for help because I have a problem with the resolution of my screen. I downloaded EndeavorOS yesterday and had a wide number of resolutions to choose from, but today I turned on my computer and I have 640x480 and I looked at xrandr and it detected the None-1 monitor (although Screen0 also appeared). I have tried adding resolutions with the same xrandr but nothing changes.
My graphics card is one from Nvidia, specifically a Zotac GeForce 9500 GT. I would like to know if someone could help me
Extra:xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 640 x 480, maximum 4096 x 4096
None-1 connected primary 640x480+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 0mm x 0mm
640x480 60.00*+

Are you running on the opensource nouveau driver?

inxi -Ga

I’m new to this and I don’t understand it well, so I put the command you mentioned and now I’ll tell you what appeared so I’ll know if it’s working or not.

$ inxi -Ga

The problem likely is that it’s not showing the drivers as loaded. How did you install the drivers?

Edit: Didn’t? Or you did and they just aren’t loading properly.

Edit: It also shows no monitor picked up. What spec version is the DP cable?

Monitor-1: Unknown-1 mapped: None-1 res: 640x480 hz: 60 size: N/A
modes: 640x480

Can you run nvidia-inst -t and post the whole output it shows.

Edit: This is just a test so no changes will be done.

Edit: Since you are new then you need to use code tags around what you post from the output. Just put three back ticks ``` or three tilde ~~~ before and after what you copy and post from the output. Or you can use the preformatted text button above in the topic window.

I have not installed the drivers because, as I mentioned, everything worked correctly until yesterday with a large number of resolutions. I don’t know what the DP of a cable is, sorry.

Well i think you need to install the drivers. Can you please run nvidia-inst -t and post the whole output.

I have put the command nvidia-inst -t and I get order not found.

You may have to install nvidia-inst first.

When you installed did you use the default menu entry and not the nvidia one?

Edit: If you did it should be showing nouveau driver.

How do I do it? (of course, in case it is something more or less simple)

yay -S nvidia-inst

Edit: Then run the test and post the complete output.

nvidia-inst -t

Okay so it’s showing that it’s not fetching the card ID. Give me a minute to look something up.

Ok

Edit:It seems I answered the wrong one

What happens if you run

nvidia-driver-supported-branches

Edit: Can you also run this one.

nvidia-installer-check

I think this card needs the 340.XX version so you need to install them from the AUR.

yay -S nvidia-340xx-dkms nvidia-340xx-utils nvidia-340xx-settings

Edit: This is using yay to install which will build the packages and install. Just press enter for each question since you are not familiar with it.

Edit2: Once it is all done then you’ll need to reboot and post this again.

inxi -Ga

It’s because the card is now unsupported via Nvidia so you have to install these drivers from the AUR.

Edit: It should have been running on the open source nouveau driver but somethings messed it up.

Wait
