Hi Guys,

I'm trying to dual screen my laptop with a monitor that is a 4:3 aspect ratio with a maximum ratio of 1280X1024. My laptop monitor is a 16:10 ratio (1680X1050). I've been looking through the nvidia xserver settings and the only resolution it will let me use on the monitor is 1024X768. Is there anyway to extend the desktop onto the external monitor while maximizing the resolution to 1280X1024?

Thanks for any help.
