    I have a Dell 20" ultrasharp that I use with my macbook while I'm home and from time to time when I plug in my laptop the resolution will be great, 1680x1050 and crisp and other times when I plug it in, my resolution seems to be lacking. The desktop icons are larger, firefox takes up the whole screen instead of just a portion like other times. Anyone know what's going on? I've tried googling and I'm kinda at a loss. Not really sure what's going on because I'm not doing anything differently.

    Sometimes that happens to me with my Dell 24" Ultrasharp. It seems to happen when I have my laptop hooked up to my tv (1080p) close the lid, unplug it, get to work, plug it into my Dell 24" Ultrasharp, open the case and it shows some messed resolution.

    I just re-detect displays it fixes itself.

    maybe that's what I'm doing and I just don't realize it.
