Some KVM switches limit the resolution. The documentation on "the some IOGear model" should say.
A lot of laptops come with a VGA external port for hooking up an external monitor. since you have a KVM switch connected to the laptop is there a reason you just do not hook up the monitor directly bypassing the KVM and probably eliminating the resolution situation?
@hamluis: Yes, I tried changing the resolution from the laptop. The closest resolution was 1400x1200 or something around that.
@ThunderZ: The KVM I have can go up to 1920x1080. Obviously the quality diminishes since it's running from Analog VGA. I can't hook it up directly because I have one other computer that is connected and cannot take it down when I need to use the laptop. My desktop (though a different computer) runs just fine at the default resolution of the monitor.
