Windows 10: Netbook external monitor resolution issues

    Netbook external monitor resolution issues


    I am having issues with external monitor resolution in my netbook with Windows 10

    Monitor: HP Pavilion 22cw, (my current desktop monitor) using VGA

    If I select "Extend desktop" then the monitor is set to 1920x1080 just fine and the netbook's screen shows fine.
    But if I select it to output just to the external monitor, then the resolution menu is greyed out and the resolution is stuck at 800x600. Obviously, the netbook screen turns off.

    AFAIK with Win 7 I hadn't any issues.

    Any ideas?

    Thank you.
