The limit is due to your video card in your computer, did you try to install the monitor driver on your lap top for this monitor since it needs the inf file for the computer to know what kind of resolution this monitor can support. You also may not have enough memory for the video card since it is shared memory with the CPU.
It's much better to buy the battery from the manufacturer's website. The transaction is a lot safer and reliable. Take there are two categories of battery the ORIGINAL and REPLACEMENT. Normally the highe mAh capacity has the longer battery life. The price of REPLACEMENT batteries are much lower than the ORIGINAL batteries.

Power drain would be a better solution in this case.
1.first shut down the comp
2.unplug the charger
3. remove the battery
and after press and hold the power button for 60 seconds without any charger and the battery.After the 60 seconds replug the battery and the charger and turn the computer .
and if this doesn't help
then try to take out the ram or memory chip from the computer and place it back.
Yes you can. You can increase the memory up to 1GB. If you are going to keep the memory inside then you should buy a 512 MB memory card, making your computer run on 768 MB of memory. If not then replace it with a 1 GB memory card. Remember, this computer can only support a maximum of 1GB total memory. The price depends on the memory module. The higher it is, the higher the price will be. Go to your local computer store for the price.
I've noticed that in the bios you can't increase Dedicated video memory because the max for your laptop is 256 but if you check your overall video memory with the shared memory added on by right clicking on your desktop and clicking screen resolution, go to advanced settings, and it should show your adapter with the amount of total graphics memory, the dedicated video memory (video memory of video card), system memory(Mine is 0), and shared video memory ( Ram being accolated together with the graphics card making more video card memory in all). If you switched to XP however, you will probably have less video card memory. Everything should be fine if your on your laptop's default operating system (Mine is windows 7 home premium).
its the motherboard. hp is aware of this issue. please visit their site and type in your model number there has been release a limited service enhancement to replace motherboards affected by this. there is another solution that has worked somewhat, which is to update your current bios to the most current and then go into your device manager and unistall the microsoft acpi-compliant control method battery under batteries there. i have found that to work often, in the event it does not you should really try the enhancement warrant, i sent out 2 units today for that same problem
If your external video is working, most likely your VGA controller is good. Your laptop is using the same controller to control internal and external video. It could be two things that would cause your problem:
1. LCD VGA cable that connect your LCD to the laptop
2. Bad LCD VGA connector on the board(cold soldered joints)
3. BAD LCD panel
Any of the following repairs will require disassembling of your laptop.
You better try to increase the virtual memory of your system as seems you would nt be able to increase the pre allocated video memory to your video device.
The virtual thing you can do by going to the my computer's properties and then in advanced tab you find performance options .Here you can tweak your virtual memory accg to your systtem memory
