Default Re: Issues with Dual Screen on Thinkpad W700ds & Linux

Basically, you're telling the driver to ignore what it thinks the native resolution of your screen is supposed to be and forcing it to use what you tell it instead. This is really only necessary when you have a broken monitor like yours -- DVI monitors are required by the DVI spec to return an EDID, so it's not unexpected to get weird behavior with a monitor that doesn't.
