|I have an HP 2711x 27" monitor connected to my Sager laptop with an AMD Radeon 7970M video card, and I use DisplayLink technology to connect the two.|
I am able to play some high-output games through the external monitor (e.g., Watch Dogs) on modestly scaled-down settings, but totally unable to play others which are much less challenging (e.g., hidden object games). If it doesn't work, I will only hear the audio, and see corrupted graphics. But it seems to be very random which types of games work or don't work.
I understand this has something to do with hardware acceleration (?) or how high the graphics settings are.
Can anyone help me figure out how to make it work most or all of the time? If not, can you give me advice on what my next setup (PC, video card, monitor, software) should look like if I want all games to play through the monitor?
