Geforce 7400 resolutions on Sony Vaio FE21

this may be a newbie question, but still need answering....:

My laptop has a top resolution of 1280X800.

I want to get an external TFT monitor which will undoubtedly have a higher native resolution than that (I'm looking at several 20" screens right now)

1. Will my graphics card be able to run an external screen at a higher resoltuion than 1280X800? (and I'm not particularly intersted in games - this is really for working on photographs)

2. If it can't, and I run the external screen at lower than its native resolution, will I get a lousy picture?

many thanks

Yes you can work on 2 screens... hook the secundary monitor, boot the PC, go to the display properties move the external screen representation to match your actual setting. (my 24" is right above my laptop)

The LCDs must be used at their native resolution. Otherwise you might lose your sight pretty quickly but get chronic headaches to compensate. In the end you'll be blind with the sensation of a hammer banging on your head. :)
