Question about Computers & Internet
I use a Dell Vostro 1700 laptop 17" wide screen (with Windows Vista Business) as my computer for work, i dual screen it with a Dell 2005FPW flat panel lcd monitor. The problem is the color settings, and brightness on the lcd are beautiful, never cause eye strain or anything. But the laptop is horrible, its too bright and way to difficult to adjust. I tried but i just made it worse. The laptop came with a 128mb Nvidia GeForce 8400M GS graphics card.
I did notice that the lcd is 1680x1050 Resolution, but the laptop only goes to 1440x900. Could that be the difference?
Is there any way to get the settings on the laptop screen to match the pretty monitor?
Please help my eyes!
Correct the resoulution is not the same. Also you are using 2 monitors and using the system to power these great displays. Just dont hook up a docking station. The picture gets really bad..
