I have a Dell LAtitude D820 with Nvidia Quadro NVS 110M. I recently reloaded the laptop and up to that time the dual monitor function worked fine.
Suddenly about 10 days ago, the external montor funciton stopped working. The Nvidia control panel picks up the second monitor (which works with other laptops) and there seems to be a signal, but no picture. If I play a clip with Windows Media Player, it appears on the second screen and I can watch the clip on the external monitor, but when the clip ends, the screen goes blank.
It did come back over the weekend, but then disappeared when my screen saver came on.
I have updated all the drivers, bios and run a reg scan, but I cannot seem to get my desktop on my external monitor. Dell support seem to think it is a software problem and have suggested a re-load, but I don't want to go through the hassle of this again!

Re: External display not displaying!
When you are able to view a video clip on the external monitor, We can rule out the issue with the software. Probably you need to check the connections and also the external monitor settings in the display. The reload might have changed the old setup
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Hello, your question is a bit confusing. By 9.0, exactly what you mean? Do you mean DirectX 9.0? If so, yes, you can visit microsoft.com, downloads page for a list of DirectX 9.0 or even later drivers which will run on your system and will update your current DirectX. But if you are looking for graphics, go to this page: http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/04/Product/latitude-d620
and hit ANALYZE SYSTEM FOR UPDATES. Hope this helps, if not please contact me why not :) Thanks

Try connecting an external monitor to the Dell Latitude D820. If the monitor display is fine, then your laptop’s LCD display panel is defective. If the monitor has no display, then your problem is with either the video card or motherboard located inside your laptop.
