    Welcome to Ten forums Brodo,

    Go to control panel > Display > Adjust resolution - this will be on the left side > Display - choose the correct display > Resolution - set at the correct resolution.

    When done Click apply > then OK to save your setting's.

    Please post back to let us know if it worked for you.

    I have a lappy and external monitor and set it up the same way.

    PS; I will be here all day Turkey day and straight thru thru week end.

    your laptop can only output 1366x768 - when you use "clone displays" -option, your full HD monitor gets restricted with this resolution. you need to "extend these displays" and then via display configuration set the correct full HD resolution to your monitor and the 1366x768 to your laptop monitor
