I have a Lenovo Thinkpad T410 and an LG monitor E2250 (1080p, so should support 1920×1080). I try to connect the monitor using the RGB connector and use it as an external monitor. The problem is that Windows 7 only shows the monitor as a non PNP monitor and will not allow me to set the resolution to 1650X1050. I installed the driver for the monitor manually, but it still did not help, even after a restart.
I might add that the external monitor does not display the BIOS messages at boot.
What can I do?
