x61 doc monitor control

With the x61 attached to the doc and a 1680 x 1050 monitor, how do I use the full capabilities of this monitor. It seems to limit my screen resolution.
 
Thanks

Issue resolved with video driver update.

Re: x61 doc monitor control

question - I thought that the max resolution on the X61/X61s was 1024x768 ? How'd you get the higher resolution?
 
thanks.

Re: x61 doc monitor control

1. Bios update

2. Video driver update

3. Plug and Play Dell E207WFP analog driver

4. In display properties: Monitor #2 set to screen refresh rate 60 Hertz

5. Screen resolution set to 1680 x 1050

6. Set to use external monitor only from newly created docked profile.

 

This is to the best of my recollection as the laptop is gone now.
