Should have mentioned: it's a desktop PC, all input devices are wired and connected via USB. I could try with PS/2

I have a dual boot configuration with Fedora 26 and Windows 10. Recently, I had to replace a disk that was used as secondary partition for my Windows installation. Since then, when I boot grub shows the boot selection screen, but when I try to select something via arrow keys, a screen is shown where I can modify boot parameters; as if I hit 'E'.

After I cancel the edit with 'ESC' I am returned to the boot selection screen and can navigate via the arrow keys.

I haven't found anything in my grub.cfg that indicates what causes this behavior.

2015-09-20 09:23:23 -0500 asked a question fedup remains in Grub after upgrade

I recently had problems with my graphics driver in Fedora 21 (see Distorted image) and thought I might resolve it by upgrading to Fedora 22. I then removed the nvidia driver as per rpmfusion guide:

sudo yum remove xorg-x11-drv-nvidia\*

I updated my system, started fedup, got a warning regarding the biber package. Then I aborted the upgrade, removed biber, started fedup again and rebooted:

sudo fedup --network 22
sudo fedup --resetbootloader
sudo yum remove biber
sudo fedup --network 22

The upgrade was an access, I did all the post-upgrade steps documented in the (fedup wiki)[]

sudo rpm --rebuilddb
sudo dnf distro-sync --setopt=deltarpm=0
sudo dnf install rpmconf
sudo rpmconf -a

I replaced all the configuration files found by rpmconf with the repo versions. Then I rebooted again and installed the nvidia driver:

sudo dnf install akmod-nvidia

The reboot wasn't as successful as I hoped, I got the "Oops, something went wrong" screen. I switched to terminal and forced kmod compilation:

akmods --force

The result was a complaint about missing kernel-devel package, strangely the required version was 4.0.4. I checked whether I was missing the package for the current kernel (4.1.6) to no avail. I then installed the 4.0.4 kernel-devel using the command from rpmfusion:

dnf install "kernel-devel-uname-r == $(uname -r)"

kmod compilation didn't quite work yet, so I rebooted and that worked. But somehow grub has now an entry for fedup again (Fedora (fedup) 22 (Twenty Two)). After login I tried to run

sudo fedup --resetbootloader

but got a complaint that fedup is replaced by dnf system-upgrade, --resetbootloader isn't used anymore and that is ignored while redirecting fedup to dnf.

Long story short, how do I remove the fedup entry from grub? I already tried

sudo dnf system-upgrade clean
sudo dnf system-upgrade --distro-sync clean

and googled, but couldn't find any information on what replaced

fedup --resetbootloader

My nvidia-xorg.conf was quite empty so I created a new one via nvidia-xconfig and pasted your settings into it. X is then able to start without errors, but the display stays the same. I can post the file, if you want, but there a just some additional sections for input devices and server layout. An xorg.conf with monitor, device and screen settings only, produces the same results.

I created a new, generic xorg.conf and edited the sections to match yours, rebooted and got an error ("Oops, something went wrong"). Then I used the config generated by nvidia-settings and changed the horizontal refresh rate, rebooted and got the same error. I attached the output of journalctl from directly after the error to my question.

@leigh123linux: I've added the output from the bugreport tool. Should I also start a new topic in the nvidia forums?

Tried it, I get a message 'Checking kmod exists for 4.1.6 ... [OK]'. Nothing else happens and the problem persists.

Edit 2: Instead of fixing the problem in Fedora 21 I upgraded to 22 and re-installed the driver. Currently, this seems to work. Thanks to everyone. I'll upvote once I've got enough karma.

After a kernel update required a update to my graphics driver (akmod-nvidia through rpmfusion) my display is squeezed horizontally. The squeezing happens for most resolutions, even the native one (1680x1050). The only resolution I found, that is working, is 1440x900. Removing the display driver lets me use the full screen with native resolution again. Re-installing the driver doesn't help.

I looked through the nvidia settings but didn't find anything useful.

Window manager is Gnome, graphics card a GTX 770. Under Windows everything works fine.

Kernel version: 4.1.6-100
Driver version: 355.11-1

Any ideas what could have gone wrong or how to restore the native resolution with the Nvidia driver?

journalctl -b _COMM=Xorg.bin (logfile)
Squeezed display

Edit: The update, that resulted in the squeezed display modified following packages
