If you can't select a resolution larger than 800x600 or 1024x768, your system is likely in Clone mode. In Clone mode, the resolution is set to the largest resolution that all displays support. To select a separate resolution for each monitor, you must switch to Extended Desktop mode:

  1. Right-click on the Desktop and select Graphics Properties.
  2. Click Display, select Multiple Displays.
  3. Select Extended Desktop mode and click apply.
  4. You can now select the largest resolutions for each monitor.
