    Hi,
    I'm posting because i'm a little confused concerning a situation with a dvi connection to a notebook.
    My notebook has a max 1024*768 resolution, so when i connect to 9986 via dvi (in mirror mode) i can only get aprox. half the screen of my lcd.
    No discussions in here.
    However, i've configured my 9986 to perform 1368*768 resolution (which has two black borders right and left about 2 cm) but i can only "see" this in extended mode of notebook display.
    In extended mode, i can't see my desktop icons, so what gives?
    I'm i stuck with 1024*768 max resolution of my notebook or is there a way to use the 1368*768 resolution but viewing my desktop?
    Thanks.

    If you are looking for Pixel 1:1, you are stuck with whatever resolution your notebook will output. Anything else involves scaling and that is likely to make the display a mess.

    Otherwise you'll have to run Powerstrip or something similar which might let you stretch the Pixel 1:1 to 1280 x 768, which is the maximum possible resolution available on the 9986 with PC applications. Do you have a DVI output on your notepad or are you using a VGA output? If you are, all of the above is meaningless.

    I'm using dvi.
    Well, there's always the option of mirroring notebook display (superior to native).
    Meaning, i've sucedeed in outputing 1368*768 (of my notebook) to 9986 via mirror.
    Any comments?

    The 15:9 mode of the 9986 (the one with the small back borders only on the sides) is 1280x768, not 1366x768.
