Hi There,
I just bought a nice 23,6 inch LCD-Monitor to work with my laptop.
The monitor should work best with resolution 1920x1080, but the max I can choose in my laptop for the second monitor is 1600x1200, and that is not the right size, everything is too wide and flat.
The laptop is a 3 year old Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo L7320GN
The screen-driver is VIA/S3G Unichrome Pro IGP version 6.14.10.343

Is there a way to make my monitor work properly?

I'm not a gamer, so I don's care very much about the speed, just the occational film should work.

Welcome to Geeks to Go!

I'm afraid there is nothing you can do other than exchanging the monitor for a smaller one with a native resolution that your laptop's graphic adapter can supply. A driver update won't help here. It's your graphics hardware that's the problem, it doesn't have sufficient video memory to output a high enough resolution for that size of monitor.

It's always best to check what your graphics hardware is capable of before buying a monitor, especially with a laptop since you can't simply put in a new, more powerful graphics adapter like you can on a desktop PC.
