I have an ASUS Eee PC 1005PX laptop computer. As the screen on it is rather small, I bought an IBM brand flat screen monitor and connected it to the VGA port of the laptop.
According to my laptop manual, my laptop's VGA port can display at 1028x768. After plugging the external monitor, however, Debian/Xorg chose a resolution of 1280x1024. As far as I can tell, it seems to run fine at that higher resolution, although I have noticed that when typing, the computer is sluggish.
- Will long-term use of this external monitor at higher resolution likely damage my laptop?
- Is the sluggish delay in typing likely a result of using an external monitor or related to the higher resolution?
