Re: different resolution on notebook LCD and VGA

Unless your notebook actually has two display adapters built in,
I very much doubt that you can do what you describe.

The only options I have seen are
a. image displayed on LCD only
b. higher resolution image displayed on VGA only
c. simultaneous display on LCD and VGA at internal LCD resolution

Were you expecting to see the same or different things on the
internal and external display? If the same, how were you
thinking the lower resolution LCD would display what is on
the higher res screen?

If you were expecting to have different images on the internal
and external displays, then that would qualify as a dual head
display - which would require specialised hardware which I havn't
seen in a notebook.
