I have a new monitor which I'm sharing between two computers: a laptop with Windows 7 (Windows 7 from now on) and a home assembled desktop with Windows 8 Developer Preview (WinDev from now on).
Windows 7 recognizes the monitor resolution of 1920x1080, and many others. Windows 8 Developer Preview doesn't; the best resolution I get on that OS is 1600x1200.
Windows 7 has:
- Mobile Intel 965 Express video
- Generic PnP Monitor as monitor #2
Windows 8 Developer Preview has:
- MSI Nvidia 9600GT with 1Gb RAM video
- Generic Non PnP Monitor
I'm using Belkin Flip USB to share the monitor between boxes
