I have a LG 29UM65-P monitor with 2560x1080 resolution. I try to show my laptop display on this monitor with HDMI cable, but the max supported resolution in the Windows settings is 1920x1080!

My laptop model is: HP Pavilion DV6 3150 with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 graphic adapter. Is there a way to make it to support 2560x1080 resolution?


The HDMI port on your laptop does not support 2560x1080.

HP Pavilion dv6 Entertainment PC, Maintenance and Service Guide (Page 4):

High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) v1.3 supporting 1080p and 1920 x 1080 at 60 Hz and 1920 x 1200 at 60 Hz DVI Mode


  • is there other way to get 2560 x 1080 from this laptop ? i use DVI-D cable with VGA to DVI converter and connect it to my laptop but it`s show no signal on monitor. – mahdi Jun 1 '15 at 19:27

    The port cannot display a higher resolution. An adapter cannot make your video card more capable. – Steven Jun 1 '15 at 20:50
