    Hi Clearia ,

    Sorry you're running into graphics issues.

    I imagine this is due to poor support on CloudReady for high end Nvidia chips.
    Do you have the option in your BIOS to disable the Nvidia graphics in favor of Intel integrated ? Those will likely work just fine for anything CloudReady does.

    in crouton it works fine.

    Hmm... I'm not educated enough to know if crouton can provide a driver of it's own that might improve things ... But I don't think so.

    So instead let's dig deeper on the problem - what site, app or extension does this error show up in? Is it present for all video playback? Or do basic videos like YouTube playback smoothly?

    this is in crouton

  • Clearia
    it say 720*400 but real is 1440*900

    that helps me understand the resolution error, but can you clarify what you mean by

     

    "framelapse error and very few frames captured."

  • Clearia

    display lag

    hm.. .it would indeed then seem like the window/display server in Crouton has better support, by driver or otherwise, for your hardware. 

     

    You still should consider looking in your BIOS for how to disable your Nvidia graphics - that is likely to resolve the trouble.

    will it could be repaired??

  • Clearia

    My only one hdmi port can be used in geforce gt 1030.

  • Clearia

    why crouton support it but cloudready does not?Doesn't they run the same kernel??

  • Forrest Smith

    1 ) we don't open today hardware let have commercial demands for supporting it, so while this issue may improve with future updates I can't promise any particular fix on any particular timeline.

    2) this suggests to meet that the other HDMI port is used by the Intel graphics, which I still recommend you try to switch to

    3) I don't know - yes they do share the same kernel , but note that CloudReady had a dramatically different display server and window management than other Linux environments you'd use in Crouton. I suspect the issue is between Nvidia and the Chromium -specific display code.
    Keep in mind that they are no Nvidia x86 Chromebooks so Nvidia is there least native hardware for this OS.

    I am also having problems using the Nvidia GT 1030 card in a Dell OptiPlex 7010.

    While browsing, the system will lock up for a few second ie: no scrolling or cursor movement in the browser. On my CPU monitor I see one of the cores maxing out for a couple of seconds.

    Not a big deal for me, I will just use the onboard graphics (Intel HD 2500) display ports when using CloudReady and the GT 1030 when I boot up from my Windows 10 hard drive to play any games. 

    In the BIOS, I do not have to turn off the GT 1030 card, I just switch the monitors cords. 

    Note: I turn off my CloudReady drive (240G SSD) in the BIOS when booting up Windows. Hopefully this will prevent any virus from infecting CloudReady when running Windows. 

    Supporting the Nvidia GT 1030 would be nice since most of the  Dell OptiPlex systems don't have power supplies to support high end graphic cards. My OptiPlex 7010 SFF has 50 watts max for the PCIe slot, the GT 1030 requires 30 watts.
