screen on external monitor

I have notebook HP6655ec with 1280x800 and LCD monitor 22" Benq with resolution 1680x1050 at work and home LCD TV LG with 1920x1080. I install manually latest NVIDIA driver 180.29 before 180.22. When I connect external monitor via HDMI or VGA connector, screen on external monitor is not over full screen, but is left top corner and size is 1280x800. If you look at video you see cursor go to the border but window is crop at size 1280x800. I think that this
is problem XFCE  because i try everything modification driver and X server and when I boot in openbox everything is OK. I use NVIDIA Twinview
this is a video:

Re: screen on external monitor

You sure it is because of Xfce. Did you try another desktop environment?

Re: screen on external monitor

Yes I install openbox dektop environment, there is everything is OK. I think somewhere in config files XFCE is stored resolution 1280x800, but I do not know where?
