    [SOLVED] External Monitor stuck at Laptop Resolution?

    I have a Dell 6400 (15.4inch screen 1280*800) and have connected a Samsung 21 inch screen that supports 1650*1080. When I close the lid on my laptop when I want to use the external display I am stuck in 1280*800. How do I increase the maximum resolution for the external monitor?

    I have used EnvyNG-GTK to install the ATI drivers, had had no luck with the Ati Control panel either.

    I have resolved the issue by simply hitting CRTL + ALT + BKSPACE with the laptop lid closed. Now I get the native res on the 21" external monitor.
