Hi, I recently installed pop os.
It's been a great experience so far, everything works smoothly and out of the box EXCEPT: my 1440p external monitor over hdmi. I have pop on my razer blade stealth, so an i7 and i915 gpu.

Setting the external monitor to everything below 1920x1080i works, but 1080i and 1440 does not work, the monitor just goes black, then shows "no signal found" and flickers repeating "no signal found".

VIDEO:
What I tried: HiDPI Daemon on/off, different cables, different resolution, lots of googling



If that was confusing, here are some pictures:

External Monitor works on low res:


External monitor flickers, no input (can't actually see right picture since display doesn't recognize input)


Internal monitor in reduced resolution so scaling works
