I'm pretty sure this question would go here. I want to confirm my thoughts that it's on the video card in the PC or the laptop that will determine the display on a monitor.\n\nI have a 24 inch and a 32 inch TV and they both can be used as monitors. When I've hooked up a laptop to the 24 inch, the display used the entire screen, so that's great. However, when I've hooked up my laptop to the 32 inch, about 25-33% was not used and the display kind of nestled down in a corner, so I couldn't even maximize the screen on the laptop to see the bottom part on the display.\n\nIs it the video card or are 32 inch and larger monitors just too big overall? I want to set up a two external monitor system and still have something else on my laptop screen. Do I use the 32 inch as a TV and get another 24 or maybe 27 inch as the second monitor?
