By default the Windows 7 display driver duplicates the display on LVDS and SDVO outputs thus limiting resolution to 1024x768.

To allow for higher resolutions

  • Right click on desktop and select Screen resolution
  • In Multiple displays select Show desktop only on 2 and press Apply
  • Under Resolution select the desired resolution out of the ones your display supports.
