I have a W530 and I am trying to connect to a Dell S2740L monitor. When doing so via RGB, no problem. I can split the images/programs between the two separately.
when I connect to the same monitor via the mini-display port using a converter to plug the HDMI connector, the best I can do is duplicate the PC screen or have the PC screen pushed over to the monitor and the laptop screen becomes the extended one.
I can't get the PC screen to be primary and the external monitor to be secondary.
I have tried the various options using "Display" and "Screen Resolution" but none allow me to create the scenario described above.
