Linux doesn't detect my Nvidia gpu

Hey. I've tried pretty much every distro in the top 15. On windows 10 everything works as it should. However on Linux the resolution always gets locked on 768 or 1024 and it can't be changed.

 

The strange thing is as I change the vga cables. Something else always happens. The nvidia card doesn't even boot up on Linux on the new Vga cable and then it works with the built in Intel graphics card. However when testing with the older cable it works again. Should I buy another VGA cable.

 

We are talking about Nvidia GT 750. And an older 22 inches Hp Screen.

 

What could be the issue?Hey. I've tried pretty much every distro in the top 15. On Windows 10, everything works as it should. However, on Linux the resolution always gets locked on 768 or 1024 and it can't be changed.

VGA?.. does the card have white ports or blue ports? . blue are 15 pin vga, white are something DVI .. do  you have a mini-hdmi to hdmi cable? ..  what ports does the montior have? 

 

do you know if the kernel supports nvidia cards at all?.. last time many years ago.... over a decade actually. i had to compile the kernel to make it work, but all the distro USB's i've tested the last 10 years have supported NVIDIA from start, so i assume you have cables mixed up.. what works where.

Go to popos and download the iso with nvidia drivers

I have an ASUS G14 2021 with Manjaro KDE and I am a professional Linux NoOB and also pretty bad at General Computing.

They are blue ones. Neither the gpu or the monitor have hdmi ports. What happened was I was using Linux a lot. Years ago. And suddenly all Linux distros broke out of no where. I went to fedora. Ubuntu and the list is long. I'm currently trying to resolve the issue. The things that are different since then is they stopped recognizing the gpu as gpu. It just says other display driver. However just right about this time. I changed vga cables once again (when this weirdness stated happening). I currently lack the knowledge about cables and thought all vga cables are the same. However there's a massive difference when I'm testing different vga cables. I will be able to count the pins tomorrow.

 

As for native Nvidia kernel support. Do you mean Pop Os Nvidia edition? I have tried that about 2 days ago and the same issue still prevail

When I first bought it it said Gt 750. It may have been renamed to GTX 750. However that's just about it. It's for Pc. Motherboard: p8H61-M LX3 R2.0

What distro?

 

750 will need old drivers AFAIK, and most distros probably don't offer these from the repos anymore, requiring manually finding and installing it.

Gtx 750 is supported all the way to 380. Which was in 2018 I think. What about the cables?
