I want a short answer to this question:

Can I get my laptop screen to get from 1440x900 to 2048x1536?

I have the Intel GMA 950 graphics card, and they claim it can display resolutions "Up to 2048x1536 for both analog and digital displays." If that is true, why is my laptop only in 1440x900? I would LOVE to have 2048x1536! Is there a way to do this without buying a whole new monitor?

Thanks very much,

If the LCD display in the laptop screen is 1440x900 resolution, then that's the maximum it can display - there is only that many pixels on the screen. The video chipset can send out a higher resolution but the internal screen can't display it, an external monitor of a higher resolution can.
