* External screen on laptop - resolution problems!

  lukealexander 18:47 15 Mar 2007

Just got my Dell 2007WFP today - great screen (got an S-IPS panel!). I am hooking it up to my Acer 5021 with ATI X700 128MB via VGA.

Whilst randomly fiddling with resolutions, I managed to get the 1680x1050 resolution and it looked great, but after restarting windows, the resolution disappeared from the control panel. I have fiddled with every setting imagineable and it won't come back. I have searched the Dell "driver" CD but no drivers to be found.

Also, is there anyway for the display to automatically switch between internal and external when you insert/remove VGA cable?
