T61 does not display 1680x1050 resolution on external screen via VGA

Dear all,

in the presentation director, I have tried to establish a profile which would allow me to connect my T61 with nvidia quadro nvs 140m discrete graphics to a Samsung Syncmaster 215TW 22" screen with a native resolution of 1680x1050 through analogous VGA output.

Whether I choose "extended desktop" mode or not, I can't get it working, there is always an error message appearing. The highest res possible through VGA seems to be 1440x900!

On the other hand, via my advanced mini dock and DVI, there is no problem connecting it to the same monitor.


The machine has all the latest updates (as provided by Thinkvantage System Update).


Can you help me exploit the native resolution of my external screen?


Helpful comments are greatly appreciated.



T61, model no. 7663-13G, T7500 (2.2 Ghz), nvidia nvs 140m, 14" wide screen, advanced mini dock, Eizo S2231W external monitor connected through DVI.
