Question about Samsung SyncMaster 204B (Silver, Black) 20.1 inch LCD Monitor
I have a Samsung SyncMaster 204B external monitor and a Dell Inspiron E1505 laptop. A long time ago the max screen resolution (1600x1200) stopped working for my external monitor and now I can only get 1024x768 to fit in the monitor. If I try to put it at 1600x1200, parts of the background are off the screen and it will scroll towards those parts if I move my mouse. Something is up with my video driver, but every time I try installing it/removing the old one it doesn't help.
Different video cards offer different ways to deal with a user's screen. ATI, and others, for instance, offer a "virtual desktop", which does what you're describing. You get to the settings that control this feature from the Personalize->Display Settings menu options. Here you'll also find the different resolutions your video adapter supports. If the 1600 x 1200 resolution is listed, then I would remove the existing driver for both the adapter and the monitor, and reboot the machine. On startup, Windows will most likely detect the "new" hardware (actually, your existing ones) and will go through the process of finding the appropriate drivers for your adapter. Good luck!
