Connecting HP Pavilion dv7t-6c00 CTO Quad to 2560 x 1440 monitor.

HP Pavilion dv7t-6c00 CTO Quad
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I have a 1440p monitor and was wondering if there is any way to get up to that resolution of 2560 x 1440. The max resolution I can get to is 1920x1080 using extend desktop or using only monitor 2. All drivers are up to date. In the manual it says the max resolution supported by the hdmi, which is what I'm using, is 1920 x 1200, but my graphics card is not listed in the manual, which is the 7690m xt. And before you ask, yes all my drivers are up to date, even though the amd display driver is from 2011. 

I've also tried the other output which is vga, again maxing out at 1080p.

Hi,

 

How do you connect to it, HDMI port on your computer only supports 1920 x 1200 (or 1080).

 

Regards.

Connecting HP Pavilion dv7t-6c00 CTO Quad to 2560 x 1440 monitor.

I'm using the HDMI port, as I stated in my previous post. Is there anyway to get 2540 x 1440 on the monitor through my laptop then? Also how did you find this out? In the manual that is given for my laptop, my graphics card, 7690m xt is not listed which makes me question whether that is the correct manual. The amd card itself does support 2540x1440, so is there anyway to do this? Thanks!

Hi,

 

I know that and also shows on the following manual (page 8):

Alright so what you are saying is that this the correct manual despite it not listing my graphics card, the amd 7690m xt, and that there is no way to support 2540 x1440 resolution on an external monitor?

 

I also already knew about the manual and the max resolution offered by the hdmi as I refered to this manual and that page in my first post.

Hi,

 

That is true each vendor can implement/configure machines different way. Some newer machines can output to 4K resolution using HDMI port but not existing dv7t, dv7 machines.

 

Regards.

Connecting HP Pavilion dv7t-6c00 CTO Quad to 2560 x 1440 monitor.

I'm not interested in 4k, I'm interested in 1440p resolution. From what you are saying, the hdmi port will not work then. What about the vga port? If not that, then is there any way to get 1440p resolution (not 4k as that is 4096 x 2160, whereas 1440p is 2540 x 1440) with my dv7? Thanks
