I don't get the full resolution of my secondary screen. In fact the resolution is even less than the one of screen of the connected MacBookPro. What is the problem? My settings are a Samsung S27B970D LED screen (resolution: 2560 x 1440 px) connected to a MacBookPro 17" model 2010 (screen resolution: 1920x1200px). I tried several DVI cables plus different adapters, but no change. I tried to find the solution in the system settings of the Mac and the screen, but nothing. I had no problem with my NEC 24" screen and I'm really surprised about the fact that the 27" Samsung allows only a blurry resolution of ~1600 x 900. I'm so disappointed. Is it possible that the NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M 512 MB is the problem?


Any help very much appreciated!

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), 2,66GHz Intel Core 8GB 1067 MHz Ram
