Monitors switched and resolution changed

asked 2016-09-09 08:43:59 -0500


I have a laptop acer 14". I was using it with another monitor (LG 23MP55) through VGA. It was working fine, but today LG was not the primary monitor any more and its resolution changed (it was 1920x1080).

The "Display" app seems different from the last time I configured, and there's no option to choose 1920x1080. I tried to use xrandr, but "cannot find mode 1920x1080".

The "Display" app also show the laptop display bigger than LG display!!! :/

How can I fix it?

So, yesterday I was not using the LG monitor, only the notebook. Today I connected the LG monitor and it's now working normally. 1920x1080

I changed nothing... well I hope it stays this way. Fedora 24 - 32 bit Gnome Version 3.20.2
