Your System setting works Unman, i had to set all three flags:

1. external display is in Use
2. External display is primary
3. Displays are in mirror mode

So what is shown on the laptop is a bit smaller than the screen, but the
external display is perfect.

I understand that the Lenovo x230 does not have the power to properly set
the two displays each with the correct resolution, but in mirror mode, they
are exactly the same and it works.

Many thanks Unman.
