Dual monitor resolution problem - dell d620 and dock
Dell Latitude D620 notebook with NVIDIA Quadro NVS 110m (driver is nvidia 126.96.36.199) and running Window 7 Ultimate Dell D/Dock deluxe docking station with (1) DVI and (1) VGA connection (2) Westinghouse 22” monitors with DVI and VGA
I want to run Westinghouse dual monitors with laptop monitor closed. Both monitors need to run 1680 x 1050 resolution. I have everything working perfectly except the monitor that is using the DVI connection is currently running at 1024 X 768 resolution and has no option to run at 1680 x 1050. This combination has worked recently but it somehow reset itself and I can’t get the resolution to change.
Solutions that have failed:
Updating drivers from Dell’s website to the latest and greatest….all updated drivers from nvidia only recognize one monitor….only current version shows both monitors.
Running a video card in the available PCI slot in the docking station. Works but at 1680 x 1050, the mouse becomes sluggish and slows the notebook. Also tried usb / VGA combo with same result.
Any possible solutions would be welcomed.

You are running one of the monitor's from a pci video card? What kind of card is it
no, the docking station has a dvi and a vga. I tried an nvidia 8600 pci card but the video was sluggish.
