I need help please. I am working at home with my Dell Latitude, no dock. I have an old 27" Dell monitor I am using with it, but I am having issues. I have never worked with multiple displays and laptops on my home computers, so this is new territory for me.
The Latitude has a VGA, HDMI, and a USB-C display port on it. I have tried hooking up VGA and HDMI to the my monitor. My monitor can do either of those, or DVI.
At work I connect it to a dock that has two crappy 24" Dell monitors (VGA connections I think). The two monitors and laptop all function as separate displays when I plug the laptop in to the dock. At home, the monitor just mirrors the laptops display. I can’t seem to find a way to change this. Windows 10 doesn’t give me an option.
The other problem is resolution. The monitor is 2560x1440, but I can’t get it to run in that mode. HDMI it would only go into 1920x1080. VGA port will go higher, but some weird resolution that is better, but still blurry.
So question is, how do I get this thing to work as a separate display as my laptop and run at its native resolution? What cable do I need?
Thanks for any help.
