Is the native resolution of the external screen the same as the native resolution of the main computer?
As a test, try disabling hardware acceleration in Chrome.

To do this, click on the Customize icon (top right corner) > Settings. Scroll down to the bottom and click the Advanced link. Scroll down some more and look for "System > Use Hardware Acceleration when available". You'll probably need to close Google Chrome and re-launch it.

If that fixes it, maybe check to see if there is an updated driver available for your video. (Or reinstall the driver and reboot)

John, the  answer is no, the resolution of each display is different: One laptop LCD and one external LCD.
