Monitor only works when resolution is low - Ubuntu 20.04, Nvidia graphics card, MSI Prestige 15

cn flag

I have an MSI Prestige 15 laptop with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q graphics card. I have installed Ubuntu 20.04 (dual boot with Windows 11) and the installation was fine. I have disabled secure boot in BIOS. I also have an external monitor - LG 24QP500-B 24” QHD (2560 x 1440). The monitor is detected and I can choose it's resolution in the settings -> displays. But when I set it to 2560x1440, the display just goes black, although it is still detected and my mouse can reach the monitor region. It works fine for lower resolutions like 1600x900. I have tried using Nvidia driver versions 525, 525-open and 470.

The output corresponding to my monitor for xrandr: xrandr command output

Additionally, output of nvidia-smi nvidia-smi output

When I run nvidia-settings, I cannot see any display configuration: nvidia-settings

Additional drivers : Addtitional drivers

Can you help me resolve this? The monitor at 2560x1440 works fine on Windows 11.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
