my new laptop drives my crazy. Currently, I am working with a 800x600 display setting. Xrandr and grub resolution settings do not work :-( I have an intel i7 and

lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 vga

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Sky Lake Integrated Graphics [8086:1916] (rev 07)
    DeviceName:  Onboard IGD
    Subsystem: Pegatron Device [1b0a:2281]

Up to now, I installed the kernel-4.3 because of the "better" hardware support of Sky Lake Graphics. Unfortunately, it is still not detecting my resolution 1920x1080. My additional graphic card is NVIDIA GTX 950M.

lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 3d

01:00.0 3D controller [0302]: NVIDIA Corporation GM107M [GeForce GTX 950M] [10de:139a] (rev a2)
    Subsystem: Pegatron Device [1b0a:2281]
    Kernel modules: nouveau

I need no special 3D performance, but I need at least my Laptop resolution of course. I know it is a special configuration, because I have to use bumblebee for complete support. But it do not work for my setting :-(

If someone out there could give me an advice I would be pretty thankful! Maybe I could switch off one device and use just one ...

Thanks a lot, Franz

If your BIOS supports it, then go ahead and turn off Optimus. I'm not exactly sure if/how this works with UEFI-based systems. Bumblebee for Fedora has always been a pain in the a** for me, as it tended to mess up some of the core shared libraries before/during/after (un)installation.

If your bios supports the switch, you have a chance. My ACER laptop does not support Optimus boards, and i tried any of the solutions offered on the web including bumblebee .. no chance :(

Thanks everyone for your good comments. Finally, I figured out the problem. I removed nomodeset from /etc/default/grup and run sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg :-)

Jippy ... now I can enjoy this beautiful Linux :-)

NVidia... :(

You have to run the binary, similar to the desktop gpu install process. Check this out

It's no big deal to get nvidia drivers running, but of the kernel does not recgonize the nvidia gpu a a gfx card, you can't use it. a 3D acceleratorcard is not supported. I got a 840M on the laptop and no chance to bring it to live.
