[Solved] Nvidia stuck at 800x600

Hey everyone. I had Endeavour OS working great with Nvidia Drivers.

I then installed some more packages (no reboot yet), and ran Cyberpunk via Lutris. I use a 4K monitor, but I changed the resolution to 720p to get it playable, then the game crashed to a black screen. I hit the power button, system turned off normally (no hard shutoff). Rebooted, now I’m stuck at 800x600, and it’s not detecting my monitor (It’s called “default”).

Not sure if some other packages I installed that caused this, or cyberpunk.
IDK what to do, besides reinstall the OS at this point.

lspci -k seems to show that I’m still running nvidia drivers

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GP104 [GeForce GTX 1070] (rev a1)
	Subsystem: PNY Device 119d
	Kernel driver in use: nvidia
	Kernel modules: nouveau, nvidia_drm, nvidia

Xorg Log: https://pastebin.com/hinmKSx7

Maybe something suspicious looking?:

[     7.465] (II) config/udev: Adding input device HDA NVidia HDMI/DP,pcm=10 (/dev/input/event6)
[     7.465] (II) No input driver specified, ignoring this device.

Any help would be appreciated.

Alrigtht, I found this link https://www.linuxsecrets.com/archlinux-wiki/wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/NVIDIA/Troubleshooting.html

Added the following xorg.conf entry:

Section "Device"
    Identifier     "Device0"
    Driver         "nvidia"
    VendorName     "NVIDIA Corporation"
    BusID          "PCI:1:0:0"
EndSection

I’ve got 4k video back working good.
If i use the picom compositor which runs by default my video lags at like 15 FPS everywhere. I believe I had issues with that before, so I will just not use picom.
So I think I am back to normal.
