nvidia gtx 1060

Postby bitskull » 08 Nov 2016 08:22

I replaced nvidia gtx 750 with nvidia gtx 1060 and reinstalled SolidK (it was unable to boot after upgrade).
Now I am locked in 1024 x 768 resolution and can't change it.
There are no available drivers in device manager.
Any ideas?

Nobody will be able to help you without information about your system. Regular SolydK or EE? Please also post the output of

It takes some time for Linux to get the right drivers for new products (not just SolydXK but Linux in general)
I was in the same situation when I built a new computer and had the new Nvidia 750TI . Several months later a driver was released and all was well.
It's just a waiting game but, eventually it'll happen .
Be patient my friend.....
