Looking at your poast again I see you ran the driver auto install, but i don't see mention apt update and apt upgrade - can you run
sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
the latest amd drivers are in the kernel modules and may not update if you do not have the latest kernel for your hardware.
I have just done it, no changes
I won't have time in the next few weeks to save everything and reinstall, I contacted Gigabyte for now, to see what they respond
Good luck Sachy31. Come back and let us know what you find out?
I'll keep you posted!
Weirdest thing I've experienced in years, a monitor not recognized (although I'm new to Linux). Generally, monitors are pretty plug and play, even with Linux!
Still no response from Gigabyte...
Holy spider webs!
Have you had any change with your system otherwise?
I went back to my previous screen and it works at 2560x1440... I don't know what's wrong with the other screen...
~$ xrandr --verbose
xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default

No changes... Still stuck no responses from Gigabyte. Back to the previous monitor.
I still don't understand whether it's the gpu, the screen, or the os
Do you have xserver-xorg-video-ati installed?
If you have it installed, try switching to it.
Then in terminal, run:
sudo update-initramfs -u
Reboot and check what resolutions are available.
Here is the response from Gigabyte...
*Dear Customer, *
If the monitor is able to be picked up by other devices and works properly, this points to a Linux Issue. we don't have drivers for Linux unfortunately.
*Best Regards, *

Have you made certain that Secure Boot is disabled in BIOS Settings?
This is making me nuts and its not even my monitor. lol
Sachy31? Have you tried changing modes on the monitor itself? Sorry everyone, I'm kind of reaching at this point.
Hello! Yes I have tried changing modes on the monitor itself
