I have an HP min 311 netbook with Windows XP, which I've connected to a Samsung SyncMaster 2043BW display via the supplied analog cable.
The external display's native res is 1680x1050, which the netbook's ION GPU supports. I've configured the external display as the single display (no cloning or any such fancy stuff).
However, once I set the native res, the image just stretches out. It looks squashed, and it goes outside the monitor's edges. In contrast, lower resolutions manage to stay within the monitor's display edges, though obviously they are skewed in some way (vertically or horizontally).
BTW, the only res which seems to be displayed relatively clearly (it's the least blurry) is 1280x720.
I tried looking all over the web for an explanation/advice but could not find any.
I already played with the settings on the external display itself several times. So either it's not that, or I missed something.
Has someone run into this issue? I need help.
