NVIDIA Driver one monitor blackscreen on tripple monitor setup

Hi there, so I just switched from Windows to Fedora 39 with KDE Plasma as my main OS. After installing the NVIDIA drivers one of my 3 Displays doesn’t work anymore.

I would like to note, that I am aware of the hundreds of Articles regarding this issue and have read through dozens of them, but none seemed to provide any information that fixed my issue.

Also worthy to note, I am relatively new to Linux, I have worked with server installations in the past, but am not familiar with any Graphics related stuff.

So my Hardware:
CPU: Intel Core I9 12th gen
GPU: NVIDIA RTX 3090TI

Detailed Problem Description:

When booting the System, the login screen shows on all 3 of my monitors, as soon as I enter the password, one goes black and the other 2 display my Desktop correctly.

The issue started happening immediately after I’ve installed the nvidia driver from the rpm-fusion repository.

Interesting to note, if I unplug 1 Monitor before booting and replug it after I’ve logged in, they all display the screen correctly.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers a couple of time, trying how-tos from different articles, same thing every time. I Uninstall the drivers → All 3 displays work, I reinstall them → 1 goes black

I’ve been sitting on this for hours now and would really appreciate any help to fix this issue.

Your description is mostly thorough, but unfortunately does not have many details.

Please show the output of xrandr, inxi -Fzxx, and dnf list installed '*nvidia*' so we can see more details. You may need to install inxi before running that command.
Also add mokutil --sb-state to that request.

Hi yes I’m sorry, as I said I’m fairly new to linux and don’t really know what’s important / where the log are. here the outputs:

dnf list installed '*nvidia*':

does this help?

Yes it does.

I see that in your uninstall & reinstall attempts you managed to remove the nvidia-gpu-firmware package, without which the gpu cannot be properly used.
Reinstall that with dnf install nvidia-gpu-firmware or dnf reinstall linux-firmware.

You may also want to install cuda
dnf install xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-cuda

Once the installations are complete then reboot.

Ok, so I did all of the above. The problem still persists, no third monitor.

:~$ dnf list installed '*nvidia*'

The changes you just did installed 3 packages from a different repo.
local-nvidia-archive:nvidia-driver

Even though they may be valid packages it seems odd to have replaced one package originally from the rpmfusionnonfree-updates repo with one from a different repo, as well as installing the 2 new cuda packages from that other repo.

All the packages are available in the rpmfusion-nonfree-updates repo and for ease of interpreting what is happening all should be installed from the same repo. This eliminates potential for having some packages out of sync with others.

Sorry for the wait, the other repository was from a proposed fix from an other article. I have removed the archive and reinstalled the packages. The problem persists.
