Dell XPS 15 (L501x) and external display
Here is the hardware: Core-i5, 15" screen @1366x768. This also means that it has the so-called Optimus dual graphic boards system. Ubuntu only supports Intel display in that configuration...
With ubuntu 10.10, HDMI output does not work (only linked to nvidia board??).
But it does output through displayport.
The problem is that I cannot get the full resolution of the external screen. I have a fullHD monitor (1920x1080) with the standard 15pin VGA plug. With a displayport to VGA adapter, I only can get it at 1366x768, there is nothing higher in the list.
Is anyone also experiencing that?
many thanks in advance...

Same problem here, the only differences is that my laptop has an i3 core.
