Windows Vista Cloning/Dual Display

By melinaki74 ·
oh my, i have so many issues with vista. But i'll go one by one.

Here's the main one bugging me right now:

I am trying to hook up my laptop to an external monitor (plasma tv).
For some reason, the cloned display on the television, is quite small. It does not extend to the entire television screen. I've tried everything, trying to change the display settings, the monitor 1 and monitor 2, the resolution, etc. Is it a vista problem? Is it a monitor compatibility problem? Is it a cable problem? Is it a driver problem? Anybody else have this problem? Ideas?

Phew, thanks

Install Service Pack 1

Chances are that your display is not "technically" supported by stupid Vista.

I would suggest you download Service Pack 1 for Vista. It fixed my display issue.
