    I'm using a MacBook Pro OSX 10.6.4, have a simple dongle I purchased at the Mac Store which takes only DVI. The HP 2304 widescreen monitor only works with windows mirrored and has poor resolution--nothing like the 1440 Mac tells me I'm getting.

    I've used the build HP display adjustments with no joy. HP does not have Mac drivers for this display.

    Suggestions?

    So deselecting MIRROR DISPLAY does not get you a separate pane on the external monitor to set the external monitor to its native resolution?

    Which specific MacBook Pro do you have?

    Look under the GREEN 3 to find your Model Identifier.

    Uncheck mirror displays then adjust the resolution of the external monitor from the display preferences. There is no drivers for monitors in windows either
