Hi guys, i have this external samsng monitor, i hook it up to VGA port on my laptop. But weirdly when i change resolution to 1920x1800, the screen will occasionally get black like temporary turned off every 1-2 minutes. This issue only happen on Fedora. When same setup done in Windws, screen not getting any issue/problem. So i believe its not hadrdware problem.

Issue go away if i change resolution to 1600X900, but this doesn't look good

this is by blackout i mean

Any help ?

As i had the same problem, some weeks ago, i think it's a driver problem, which should be fixed now. Just do all updates and reboot. My problem is fixed since last week.
