Screen problem on boot

Running on a Dell XPS 15. When I boot I get a distorted login screen and desktop. After changing resolution in arandr and then back it resolves. Wondering if there is something I can do to permanently fix the issue.

What resolution is it at when it’s distorted? A workaround rather than a real fix would be to make an xrandr script and have it run upon login.

Can you please post /etc/default/grub

Maybe this post is helping:

I’m using lighdm so I have been trying to set ‘display-setup-script’ and ‘session_setup_script’ to a script that I normally use to set the resolution. However, neither script isn’t running or nothing is happening when it is run. The script does work when run manually.

Things are fine until the login manager shows up. No problems with GRUB. That being said I tried your suggestion and it didn’t do anything.
