Need a video card that will allow us to hook up a new wide screen monitor that requires 1080dp. Don't know which video/graphics card will work.


The short answer is no. The belief that widescreen HD monitors require special video cards derives from a combination of two sources. First, most Windows users know that you can change the display resolution by right clicking on the desktop, clicking on settings, and then choosing a resolution from a drop-down menu. What most users do not know is that the choices displayed in that drop down menu are what Windows, the Video Card manufacturer, and the Monitor's manufacturer want you to see. The fact is, most video cards are capable of displaying popular widescreen resolutions such as 1680x1050 dpi and 1920x1080 HD which are 16:10 and 16:9 resolutions.

No, it should boot with booth, you have only onboard video and as long as the drivers
are installed you should be able to use both VGA and your hd port.
At boot it uses generic drivers so both should work.

Check your screen and make sure that is set to run with the port you used on it.

So check your manual to see if you need to switch from VGA to HD port,then check the monitor for settings.

Good that you are careful about the upgrade.
However you can upgrade your powersupply with a higher wattage rating without any problem. Increased wattage power supply does not fry or harm your system. The only thing that you should be careful before you buy the new power supply is its compatibility with the existing cabinet / case that you have.

I'm trying to connect my toshiba satellite m115 to my insignia 19" lcd hdtv but its saying on the tv " mode not support " how do i fix that so i can watch my laptop on my tv?


Your toshiba m115, like my m105, is probably set at settings 1280X800. Once the LCD is hooked up to your laptop
  1. Right mouse click on empty spot on desktop
  2. left click on properties
  3. left click on settings tab
  4. left click on advanced
  5. left click on INTEL MEDIA GRAPHICS tab at top
  6. left click on graphics properties
  7. display settings
  8. change to 1024X768 or 800X600 (whatever lcd tv supports)
  9. click apply
  10. click on display devices
  11. make selection
  12. apply
