What is the actual problem?

Is the problem that the Host is showing up as “O.E.M”?
I can say on mine shows ups correctly.

Hey @Damith1981
Welcome to the forum. You opened 3 topics with the same issue. Is not the way to go. Please read Forum Rules - Manjaro

Since i don’t think you have read How to provide good information either, even tho you got invited twice before this, here is the information we want you to share with us, exactly as shown in terminal:

inxi -Fazy
and also
pacman -Qi xf86-video-intel
and also
cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf

How did you connect your display?
Using analogue cables (like D-Sub 15 pin)?

If yes, than change the cable you use to more quality one and having less long: analogue signal sources could be noised by other PC components and external noise (like radio signals of radio stations, mobile phones, Bluetooth, WiFi, etc.) and that’s one of the reason why display shown with no name and having display settings drop-down could miss/lacks display panel’s native resolution and to show only low resolutions.

Better to use digital cables only (DVI-D (obsolete), HDMI, or even better DisplayPort, etc.).
The higher the HDMI/DisplayPort version, the higher resistance to noise it provides even on lower resolution used to transmit a data (it is besides that digital signals it more resistant to noise than analogue signals).
AFAIK HDMI uses stream data connection that reduces amount of connected displays to one device per each HDMI port.
DisplayPort uses packets (like Ethernet do) and single port connection can be split to two different displays showing independent (for example different) picture like desktop extended mode (not just desktop mirroring mode only).

but this is old computer .G 41 mainboard

There are some USB 3.0 to HDMI adapters, but Linux could lack the driver for them (to make some USB port of PC to be able to output a video signal), I can’t recommend exact model to try. Also such adapters (converters) are active devices (uses external energy for work). No matter they have external power supply or via USB bus, they becoming hot. So plastic case could be less suitable to cool down a device than metal case. Comparing to plastic, external metal case will be hotter but internal components will be colder.

Unfortunately USB 2.0 is not suitable for video signal transmission (has max. of 480 Mbps of raw data connection speed only, including metadata), unless max. resolution of 800*600 or may be even 1024*768 (check it’s specs) solving your picture requirements.

Remove that driver.
sudo pacman -R xf86-video-intel
and reboot, so it loads the kernel module.
If it fails, then from TTY can be reinstalled, and we start over probably creating then a 20-intel.conf

no,what is tty .pls explain

I recommend reading this:

And this will explain a bit the usage of TTY

It will be helpful on the long run.


how can i solve this error.what is the command of it
resolution: <missing: xdpyinfo>

$ sudo pacman -Syu xorg-xdpyinfo

It’s missing command. Just install xorg-xdpyinfo package.
