    I have a samsung syncmaster external screen connected to a Satellite Pro U400.

    The screen resolution only goes up to 1280 etc however the samsung minimum is 1440 x 920 (ish I forget).
    How do I get the samsung to display the whole enlarged screen to save my eyes from the realativively small internal screen?

    Hi!

    Did you try to update the display driver on your notebook? Check the Toshiba website for an update:
    http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com => Support & Downloads => Download Drivers

    Furthermore it would be interesting to know if you run the “factory settings” or have you installed your own Windows version?
    And what OS do you use? Did you install all Windows updates?

    For external LCD monitors you should set the screen refresh rate to 60Hz.
    And if you want to change the screen resolution you must select the second monitor in graphic options on Windows.

    Bye

    Iâ??ve got a U400 which was equipped with the Intel graphic card and Iâ??ve got an external LCD which I have connected to the U400 using the DVI-to-HDMI cable.
    My U400 unit supports the HDMI and the LCD the DVI port.

    I have received also the driver disk with my LCD and I have installed the software.
    I have also update the Intel driver and used one from the Intel page.
    Now I have the access to many different external resolutions and can choose it.
