Question about Toshiba TE2100 Notebook
Hi - I'm trying to connect a new Samsung 931BW SynchMaster external monitor to an old TE2100 - but whenever I try the laptop will not let me set the resolution to 1400 x 900. The bigger screen will be for occasional rather than full time use so I've ID'd it as screen 2. As screen 2 - the maximum it will offer me seems to be 1024 x 768. I've tried following all the options provided by the Toshiba help system and updated drivers off the web - and also loaded the CD ROM drivers, but still can't get past the smaller resolution which looks odd and has a lot of black around the edges. The laptop specs suggest it can run an external monitor with resolutions in excess of 1400 x 900.
Obviously doing something wrong - but I cannot figure out what it is. Any suggestions welcome.
Instead of looking to the laptop drivers, try looking for the monitor drivers. If there aren't any, then research the video card for the machine to see if the specs you have are wrong. If there aren't any drivers for the monitor, then the drivers at Toshiba's support site should work, since they don't, I'm going to say it's in the video card.
