In the old good times of Windows 98 I was able to disable Plug&Play and
select my monitor from DB of known models or select generic
configuration to match my resolution. I miss such option in modern Linux
distributions, it could be useful fallback when Plug&Play for some
reason doesn't work. When it works, it is great but when Plug&Play is
broken, it is very difficult to configure Linux to use correct display

  Intel display driver cannot read EDID from VGA monitor

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Ubuntu 18.04

  Report if from Linux Mint 19.3 but the same situation is with Ubuntu

  Linux cannot access EDID information from VGA port and it offers
  maximum resolution of 1024x768, that is not too much for 24" monitor.
  When I connect VGA monitor to other PC with Nvidia card (cuda driver,
  GPU for games), it works OK. When I run Windows in this PC, it is OK,
  monitor is properly detected and resolution set correctly. Problem is
  only with boards with Intel video chips, those are Linux unfriendly.

  This is report from nice mini PC, HP EliteDesk 800 G1 USDT.
  Until this bug is fixed you cannot expect that people will use these office 
PCs with Linux...
