How to stop switching display resolution when using KVM switch?? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Toshiba Tecra M3 (in a docking station) and a Dell workstation attached to a Samsung 1600x1200 LCD via a KVM switch and am seeing something *really* annoying. I set up the Tecra to run at 1600x1200 when connected to the external display. If I then switch to the Dell, even for a moment, Vista detects the display loss and reverts the Tecra's display resolution to 1400x1050--the max supported by it's built-in LCD display. Argh!!

     

    My question: Is there any way to tell Vista (I'm running Enterprise) not to do this--to maintain 16x12 until I change it (or better yet, until I undock the laptop)???

     

    Thanks!
