I know a guy that bought a Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro laptop and LG Ultrawide IPS monitor. If he connects the LG monitor to the laptop while Windows 8.1 is running then he has to restart Windows before the correct resolution will appear on the ultrawide monitor. The ultrawide monitor supports 2560 x 1080. If the laptop is plugged in without restarting Windows then Windows or the monitor becomes stuck at a lower resolution setting- looks like 1920 x 1080. Strangely, the graphics options menu in Windows shows the highest resolution is selected but there's a message in the window stating a lower resolution is selected and I can see a lower resolution is in use. Changing the resolution in the graphics settings doesn't work. The specific drivers for the monitor are installed rather than the generic monitor drivers. I set Windows to switch off the laptop's screen when the ultrawide monitor is connected. I heard and read the resolutions supported by HDMI connections are limited (the way he's connecting the laptop to the monitor- micro-HDMI to HDMI cable) but I'm not sure about those limits. Sometimes I read 1920 x 1080 and other times I read 1920 x 1200. Seems like people disagree about that. He wants to be able to connect the monitor and see the correct resolution without restarting Windows. Suggestions?
