Hello all,

My system is Windows 7.

My laptop has a maximum resolution of 1366x768, which is not big enough to display the window of a program whose size is hard coded and cannot be changed. I would therefore like to connect my laptop to a projector and change the projector resolution to something like 1440x1080 (exact size does not matter as long as it is bigger). So far I have not been able to do this, although I have located the screen resolution and connect to a projector buttons so I think that I must be close.

Thank you very much in advance

You want a projector that can do at least 1080p (1920 x 1080).  Provided the video card in your laptop supports it you should have no issues.  You could also use a regular desktop monitor that supports the resolution you need.

Do you already have the projector you want to connect to? If so, what is the make & model? If it's an older model, it may not have any higher resolution than your laptop. And like Kilroy said, it might be a moot point if your laptop isn't capable of driving anything higher than its native resolution.

Thank you very much for your help. I will investigate the resolution of my graphics card. Thanks once again.
