Default display stopped working in correct resolution

Seemingly out of the blue, external display (ASUS 168b+), which had been working fine (apart from the general limitations), stopped working.

Blurred lines appear instead of expected image.

On: Mint 20 / 5.4.0-60-generic #67-Ubuntu SMP

If I change the resolution to 1024x768, then the display "works" - i.e. it displays things, but of course wrongly.

I uninstalled / reinstalled the driver, booted with previous kernel. No luck.

Curiously, the system thinks the display is fine, if I take a screenshot, it comes out normally, with the desktop background displayed perfectly/as expected.

Any ideas?


PS:

~$ dmesg

Default any solution ti this?

I have the exact same issue.
ASUS display on Ubuntu 20.04 - was working the last 6-7 months. All of a sudden it stopped working in the native resolution only showing diagonal blurred / fuzzy lines. When changing to lower resolutions (4:3) it works fine.
I reinstalled my computer trying to solve this - so fresh start, but still no luck.
Did someone have this and was able to solve it?

Thanks!

Default

Tried the fix with both 5.4 kernel (default in Mint 20.1) and a 5.8.x kernel (via Update Manager). Neither made a difference. Still just blurry lines in correct resolution.

Default evdi could be the issue

I have tried installing anythingand everything with no luck yet. still the same issue. I have come across scenarios where something would complaing about evdi but it did not do the trick for you so I have little hope but I will try to follow the description from the other thread and report if I have any success.

This is so annoying. My display was working fine for the last 1,5 years and now I am back to only working on my laptop... I hope there will be a solution for this quickly...
