Dual Monitors off of Sony notebook

I have a Sony VPCZ1 notebook with a GeForce GT 330M. I have it in a Sony docking station which gives me a DVI-D out and a VGA out. I was hoping that I could run two external Samsung monitors with this setup. One from the VGA and one from the DVI-D. Apparently the graphics card does not support two external monitors. I bought the digital dual head to go box and with this i can power both external monitors and the sony, however the resolution on the external monitors is terrible. The Sony is set on 1600x900 and the two external displays thru the dual head to go is set at 3200x1200. I can hardly read the screen. Is there a way to download a different resolution or does anyone know if the graphics card in the notebook should indeed support dual monitors without the use of the dual head to go?

Yes I have the latest. I also tried just enlarging the text thru windows 7. that makes things really show up weird in programs. If I go to a 2560x1024 it wont fill the two external monitors but looks much better.

Try changing your resolutions when the laptop is booted and closed

That was strange I had the computer booted up and closed the laptop. It shut both my external monitors off. (Need to change setting) however when i opened it back up the externals displays are configured perfectly at the correct resolution and exactly the way I want them!

We have issues like this at times where the monitors get hosed from the native resolution of the laptop.  I hope that is a permanent fix for you.
