W510, display port and getting 1080p resolution

Hi everybody!


I have read some topics and according to them on display port w510should be able to support 1080p resolution even higher, but not in my case. I have W510, LCD Iyamya prolite x2783hsu , I also bought at ebay cable displayport to hdmi and the maximum resolution that I am able to get is the highest resolution of build-in laptop LCD namely 1600x900. I installed the latest drivers for FX880M - 342.00 , but it is no use. What should I do or what lead should I buy to get dreamed 1920x1080 ? It seems to me that I can't set up different resolution for Lenovo laptop and for monitor . I added two pictures to clarify that problem.


system windows 7 but will be changed soon to windows 8.1 if it matters

thanks in advance for any help

Re: W510, display port and getting 1080p resolution



I had no trouble running an LG 25UM64 display at 2560×1080  attached to my ThinkPad W510 via DisplayPort cable, so I am guessing the issue might be with the cable.  You may want to try using a DisplayPort-to-DisplayPort cable from a reputable brand and see if that works any differently.  Unfortunately, this particular system is about 1500km away from me right now so I can't check the brand to see what cable I used.
