    Hello everyone,

    I have a MacBook Pro 15" and my father has 17", both 2007 model.

    I bought a new Samsung XL2370 external monitor (1920 x 1080) for my notebook. When I connect it to the 17" model, it works fine and gives me the full picture.

    However, when I connect it to my 15" MBP, even at 1920 x 1080, the display gets cropped on two sides with black bars.

    If I change the resolution to 1680 x 1050, then the whole screen is filled. But if I put it to 1920 x 1080, this happens.

    What am I doing wrong ?

    Many thanks for your help

    Are you setting it to mirror or to extend your desktop?

    I'm having it mirrored on both computers. (I have tried setting up as extended monitors but in vain).
