I hope that isn't the case. Thank-you for doing some tests.

Not sure if this is the answer after all. My video card says it has 128MB allocated dynamically from RAM, which should be ample for 1920x1080.

I will try that but I think but there is definitly a lot of communication between the screen and PC (various features work) which make me think the wire is probably still okay.

I'm afraid I've done both those things. I'm coming to the conclusion that it must be the graphics card that is causing the trouble, but I don't know where I can find drivers that will offer the really large screen resolution.

Hi Wil, I tried to open up the BIOS (pressing F2 after a restart) but my VAIO PC has something called Pheonix BIOS with very reduced features. I going to look into how to allocate more memory to the graphics card.

Sorry, I should have made that clear. I am using the extended desktop feature but it still doesn't work (see screenshot imgur.com/islww.png).

That's great news. I was worried because when I right click on the desktop > Properties > Select the other output, the slide only shows up to: 1600 x 1200. See image: imgur.com/1CGeB.png

Thanks for this answer. Does the above apply for a normal folder online, and does NTFS only apply for PC folders?
