Having problems with your Samsung Computer Monitors ?

New Samsung 245/bw monitor w/native resolution of 1920x1200

\015 Hi,I have a Toshiba M35-S320 laptop with the Nvidia Geforce FX 5200 video card with a single VGA monitor connection..The Samsung monitor has both VGA also called D-Sub? and a DVI port. The native mode resolution for it is 1920x1200.My problem is that I can not raise the resolution passed 1600x1200. The result is that I have about 2 inches of unusable screen on each side of the monitor. Is there any way for me to gain full access to the entire screen short of buying a new laptop. I was told that I could not change/upgrade the video card in the laptop to get the screen resolution I need.Your help would be greatly appreciated,Doug\015

Answers :

Ensure that your video setting is at 60hz when at 1920x1200. According to the specs of your monitor, the freq from the video card might be set to something higher.
1.The resolution 1600*1200 is very good. why you need it 1920*1200 ?
2. What kind of samsung monitor do you have ? If is it LCD ... It doesn't suport that resolution ..... Mine, for example, 720N , suports only 1280/1024 . 17" .

I tried pushing the button for brightness, and I saw a faint box with the words "Brightness not Available." The Auto Adjustment Feature Button works but it does
