Running a laptop on external LCD- resolution compatibility

by Old_Vic / January 12, 2007 7:34 PM PST

I've been recently contemplating the purchase of a Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo Pi 1505 laptop but I was wondering whether it would be possible to use my HP L1906 LCD monitor with it or not. I'm concerned about compatibility between the monitor's 1280x1024 native resolution and that of the laptop I intend to buy, which- according to the manufacturer's website- runs at 1280x800.

Kind Regards,
Alexandria, Egypt

The external display does not have to run at the resolution of the laptop's internal LCD. I take it you've never done this.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
