I am Using HP Pavilion , RYZEN 4000 series, nvidia graphics card.
PS- I am a noob to linux…

You should try the “SEARCH” function in this Forum,
there is a small magnifying glass in the right corner on the top of the forum-window
==> search for external display…

let’s do a cut and resume. first post the actual (!) output of

inxi --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host --width


glxinfo | grep server



glxinfo | grep server  :heavy_check_mark:
server glx vendor string: SGI
server glx version string: 1.4
server glx extensions:
   ~  echo $XDG_SESSION_TYPE  :heavy_check_mark:

idk why but i am unable to uplaod the Screenshot…but this was the output…

THIS can’t run anyway.
First: you’re running wayland on a 2060. THIS does not function !
Second: You’re running on the intel iGPU actually. post the output of the inxi-command above.

Then log out and search the left-bottom of the login-screen. there should be a option-window to switch between X11 and wayland. switch to X11 and keep in mind that nvidia does not work with wayland !

Then post the actual state of your situation. post the output of the glxinfo and session command i posted above again.

keep in mind i’m in a hurry so don’t waste time.

What have you done to install an acient 470-series driver ? The valid version number is use the package manager and install the actual driver first.

inxi -G

shows the graphic details and you’ll need a 530.
How did this happen ?

I suggest that you are a really noob. deleting and installing this weird installation isn’t easy and my opinion is that you start a new install, choose the propietary driver support at the beginning of the installation and do this first.
i already know this is a way faster than clearing up this mess.
if you’re finished with the install post the state and we can go on.



Make Backups:

Please install 2 kernels (one of them LTS)

Welcome to Manjaro! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

  1. Please read the information behind this link. It will help you to post necessary information.
  1. Please press the three dots below your post and then press the :pencil2:
  • If you give us information about your system, we can see what we’re talking about and make better suggestions.
  • You can do this by using inxi in a terminal or in console.
sudo inxi --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host --width
  • Personally identifiable information such as serial numbers and MAC addresses are filtered out by this command
  • Presenting the information in this way allows everyone to be familiar with the format and quickly find the items they need without missing anything.
  1. Copy the output from inxi (including the command) and paste it into your post.
  • To make it more readable, add 3 backticks ``` on an extra line before and after the pasted text.

How to increase your chances of solving your issue:


Looks similar but not thre same I presume?

The system isn’t fully update either. Stable 6.3 kernel is at 6.3.5-1. If you choose to do a fresh install (you should), immediately update.
