My computer is an HP t5745 which has two video outputs, shown in the GNU/Linux 'lspci' output as:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09) 00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)
The display is connected to the second device but Haiku displays to the first, which is a lower-resolution analogue output and in fact it won't go beyond 1024x768.
There should be a configuration option to tell Haiku to use the second output.
Even nicer would be a xrandr-style preferences dialog to allow switching and positioning of the two outputs.
There is no BIOS option to select the output.
#9894 is related but refers to multiple cards, not multiple outputs of one card.
