Will 13" Edge support 1920 X 1080 externally?

Tweet from @nozurbina

@lenovoforums Can a ThinkPad Edge 13" video output support a 1920x1080 native LED external display? Mine looks terrible and I can't up it!

Has anyone else tried this?  Please share your experiences...

  • Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 13" Notebook (AMD Turion,Neo X2 Dual Core L625) running Windows 7 Pro 64bit with 4gb RAM

are you changing the resolution using the ati catalyst center or the windows display property?

Yes it can, I own the Intel SU7300 version, via HDMI it does 1920x1080, via VGA should as well, my monitor is an older one and does not support 1080P, but supports the max resolution for the monitor 1680x1050.

1920 X 1080 runs easy-peasy via HDMI to PHILIPS 32’’ LCD-TV

 

 

Connecting my NUD2EGE (EDGE 13’’ Intel) via HDMI the desktop expands to 1920 X 1080

We play adventures and Age of Empires III on TV screen!

The EDGE 11’’ Intel we have, woks just the same!

Re: Will 13" Edge support 1920 X 1080 externally?

Thanks everybody!

 

I really don't know WHAT I did, but now the option appears in the resolutions list!!  Before it refused.  The only thing I did was change a setting on the display that turned off stretching so that the screen proportions were maintained, now I've got loads more output options all the way to 1920x1080.

 

However, it's still not working.  The available hrz are 29 and 30hz.  I am pretty sure my monitor is supposed to run at 60hz.  I don't know if that's recommended or compulsory.

 

To answer a question I was asked: I was using Windows, not the ATI control. Don't know where that is.  I just right-click and say 'screen resolution' from the desktop.

 

Actually, now that I think about it, it may have been an extremely stupid error: I may have been selecting 'duplicate' instead of 'projector only', so that of course the duplicate would have to be the same resolution as the internal screen!  Not sure, but if anyone else is new to Windows 7 and has this problem check it out.

 

Now that I have set it to 1920 x 1080 my screen says 'D-Sub out of range' and I can't see anything.

 

This guy was also using an LG screen, but on a Toshiba laptop and a bios update appearently fixed it.  Anyone heard of something like that?

Anyone have a quick link as to how I could upate the bios?  Can I updated both the ATI card's bios and the laptop bios in one place or do I need to go to the Lenovo and ATI sites seperately?
