External display zooms the internal LCD
I've just bought myself a Dell Precision M70 laptop with an nVidia Quadro FX Go1400 256MB graphics card. It has an LCD with resolution 1680x1050 and I want to be able to use a projector that can only handle 1024x768.
The laptop has a button (Fn-LCD/CRT) for switching between internal, external and both.
I use SuSE 9.3 and has installed the nvidia driver from YOU.
My problem is that when I switch to 1024x768 and activate both the external and internal display the picture on the internal LCD gets zoomed! The external display is fine but the internal LCD becomes a zoomed window that follows the mouse around over the 1024x768 desktop.
When I lower the resolution I'd expect the pixels to either remain the same size and the picture to be centered on the screen, or that the picture is zoomed to fit the screen. Now it is zoomed so much that it doesn't fit the display.
I don't think I want or need twinview. I want to see exactly the same picture (incl mouse cursor) on the internal display as is shown on the projector.
Does anyone know how to solve this problem?
