I would like to know if there is a display driver or any way possible to have "Extended desktop" with my NB305 rather than cloned dual display?

Thanks in advance.

Hi buddy,

Normally you can choose the options for external monitor in display driver options. There you can choose between extended desktop or clone modus.
Have you checked this?

Otherwise you should install the latest display driver from official Toshiba website. Maybe there is a newer display driver.

Hi there,

Yeah thats the first thing I tried. However the extended desktop is not showing as an option, only dual display clone.

The display version was 8-----1972 so updated to the latest driver from Tosh support but still no extended desktop option.

A little frustrating as I have a really old Dell laptop with xp on running two external monitors as extended desktop.

If you are running Windows 7 Starter it does not support Extended Desktops only Desktop Mirroring. You'll need to upgrade to Home Premium for Extended Desktops...

I have now upgraded to Home premium but have not attached extra monitor as yet to check. Will post results when tested.

Thanks.
