I tried hooking up my ps3 to my nxm1735 monitor using a hdmi dvi adapter but when i plug it in the screen goes black and says check video cable nad then turns off when i turn it back on the screen is blank. I checked my hdmi dvi port with cable on a friends computer and it worked fine but when i tried it to my monitor it just said the same thing. Please advise me on what to do.

The 9-pin port on your PC tower is NOT a video port, it is a serial data port. All VGA connectors are 15-pin. Hooking up to the 9-pin port will not get you a picture. There should be a VGA port on the PC, or else a DVI an/or HDMI port. You can get DVI-to-VGA adapters that work, but only if the DVI port is an analog DVI, not if it is a digital DVI (DVI-D or DVI-DD).
Connection the monitor depends on the connections you have out of your Toshiba laptop.
The monitor has both VGA and DVI.
If the Toshiba has a VGA out, all you need is a VGA cable available online, computer or electronics store.
If the Toshiba has an HDMI out, you can connect it to the DVI on the monitor with an HDMI cable and an HDMI to DVI Adapter.
You can also use USB out with either a VGA converter or a DVI converter (go with DVI for the better picture). Converters can be found online at Amazon, you may also need a standard male to male DVI cable to use with the converter.
Researching your monitor specifications, it has a native resolution of 1920x1080 so the setting you are running should work.
Have you tried the other HDMI port on the monitor? It has to inputs and it is possible that the current port is causing the reported issue.
Another option is to get a DVI to HDMI adapter OR use a DVI cable with your graphics card to see if that corrects the issue. It is possible that the HDMI inputs are going bad and using a different input could resolve the issue. Both DVI and HDMI are digital inputs so you should not see any quality differences between the two connections.
The final check would be to connect your PC to another HDMI enabled screen (another monitor or TV) and see if the resetting continues on a different screen. If the problem occurs on a different display, you will likely have to download and install the latest video drivers for your card.
If it like my monitor, same hookups as yours, then when you want to use the hdmi port you need to disconnect the dvi cable. The monitor cannot read from hdmi & dvi when both are connected, Try this & see if your PS3 works. Good luck
I've read that aftermarket DVI cable adapters don't work well with this set-up. You might try the Apple DVI to ADC adapter. It's expensive but I see them on eBay or craigslist from time to time at less than half the normal $99 cost.
