Probably needs a BIOS update in order to support more or new LCD screens. I would file this to DELL with exact specification of the new LCD (model, serial, resoltion, voltage, partnumber etc.etc.)

You might want to try and change some settings first in the DELL BIOS. There's usually a setting "called stretched output" enable/disable (don#t quote me on that it could be named differently). This might fix it, but i doubt it. It#s worth a try at least.

Thanks for getting back to me.

Dell technician suggested the following:

Updating the bios

Upgrading the firmware of the GPU (Quadro FX 1400)

I upgraded the bios but this didn't fix the problem (upgrade from A01 to A04)

I tried the "stretched output" option but all it does is stretching each of the screen withing its quarter

The Technician was not able to find a firmware update for my GPU.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks
