Latest Nvidia driver [530.41.03] does not allow maximum refresh rate of connected monitor | fedora 37 | GTX 1080

I am currently using a display which its maximum possible refresh rate is 240hz at 1440p, On the previous release [525.xx.xx] my monitor worked perfectly fine and I was able to set my refresh rate to 240hz at 1440p. currently with the new drivers [530.41.03] my display is limited to 144hz at 1440p which it shouldn’t. both nvidia x server settings and gnomes settings do not allow me to change my monitors refresh rate to 240hz. I reinstalled the drivers several times and I checked both wayland and x11, both did not allow maximum refresh rate.

here is the bug report file:

I hope this report helps fix the issue for the next release of the drivers.


I have the same problem.
Would be so cool if it would be fixed soon.

I have a bug [4356173] filed internally for tracking purpose.
Could you please share bug report in debug mode for triage purpose?

Hello, it has been such a long time that I have uninstalled linux and installed a windows system. I am unable to provide a bug report.

If I recall correctly, during the time I did some experiments with launching games and other programs. The problem seemed to be the fact that the Nvidia drivers were not loaded at all. Everything seemed to be running off of the open source nouveau drivers which explains why I was unable to pick the highest refresh rate.

Although, trying to reinstall the drivers had no effect. I remember uninstalling, restarting, and reinstalling multiple times before completely redoing my system.

I hope this information helps at least somewhat alleviate the issue.

I can provide one, I suspect that I might have the same problem.
You can find details here: [BUG REPORT] Can't select highest refreshrate in NVIDIA Settings my monitor supports (240Hz) since 535

Here is my bug report in debug mode:

Thank you very much for looking into this problem.


Please add Option "ModeDebug" "True" to the device section of xorg.conf and capture the log again, which should capture mode validation information. Thanks!

All right, did it. I upgraded to Fedora 39, I hope that is not a problem. If you need the bug report from Fedora 38, I can provide that but it will take a few days.

Some things in the log are not correct. The log contains the installer log of an attempt to install version 525.116.04 but since then I installed the current version 545.23.06 via dnf package manager.

Thanks for sharing the logs, I was able to repro issue internally as well.
We will proceed with debugging now and will keep you posted on it.

Thank you very much, I wish you much success in troubleshooting.
I will wait patiently for updates.

Fix has been integrated into driver and will be available in future released driver.

Thank you very much. Is it known when a new update including this fix will be released?

Potentially related to Driver fails to validate 3440x1440@160Hz on Linux, works on Windows? Fix inside that thread.

For me, this bug has been fixed since 535.146.02 and 550.40.07
