I am trying to connect a VA1912w monitor to a DELL D820 laptop with Nvidia Grpahics card. I am not able to get the native resolution required for the monitor (1440 X 900).I installed the driver for the VA1912W but still the maximum resolution I see for the monitor in Windows is 1024 X 768. Is it the Monitor driver issue or a display adpater issue.

Re: Connect VA1912w Monitor with DELL Laptop
I don't think it is a problem with the monitor or its driver.Please adjust the monitor settings on Windows by Right click-Properties-settings-Screen Resolution-1440*900.Now check whether you are getting the native resolution.

try to connect to a VGA Monitor (it has DB15 Connectors(bing or google it) and usually in blue or black colors) and press and hold windows key then press P on your laptop keyboard or (peripheral PC keyboards) tap these shortcut for 2 or 3 times and see what happened, if you see any changes on monitor or see your screen on the VGA monitor your Graphic card is fine so go to the next step if not
maybe you have chipset problem or bios (UEFI) problem so go to the certified Repair shop,
some laptops have a shortcut key to turn your LCD off in expanding screen mode for decrease power consumption. try press (fn + keyboard key that sometimes has a rectangular icon with x icon on top of it) if you try but nothing changes or see white screen or glitch
screen pixels then 2 possible things happened,1- your LCD flat cable or 2- may be your Screen LCD damaged in this case go to certified repair shop center
It sounds like either the lcd screen or video card inside the computer
is bad. To isolate the problem try connecting an external monitor to the
laptop. It can be any kind of monitor even the
fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your
vga port. If the external monitor displays ok that proves your video
card is ok and your lcd screen is the problem. If the external monitor
displays the black or white screen like your lcd screen then your video
card inside the computer is bad. The video will
show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything.
systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12.
down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor
F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have
the icon of a display.
Some laptops and the ac adapter get very hot. If the laptop is not
shutting down, then it is not overheating, so don't worry about it. You
can buy a laptop cooling pad that has fans on it and it plugs into one
of the usb ports on the laptop. The laptop sits on it to keep cooler.
Your battery is probably dead so that is why you can only power it up
using the ac adapter power cord. Once the power cord is removed, the
laptop will turn off. Batteries only have a useful life, and after
that, they have to be replaced.
If you don't get a display on the external monitor, then most likely your video circuit is the problem. If your laptop has a plug-in video card it can be replaced. However if it's integrated into the motherboard then you'll have to have that replaced.
try to update BIOS and uninstlal reinstall video driver. connect external monitor to check if have same problem. perform Built in self test on LCD - to do it, make sure computer is off then press and hold "D" and press power button. if still have vertical lines on screen, need to replace LCD
You need to configure the nvidia software for dual monitor mode. And refer the manual of the laptop to find the hotkey to enable external display device. If you provide the exact model number of the laptop I will be able to provide much information to you.
1: First check wether your graphics card is able to support 2 monitors. Not all built-in ones can do that.
2: If you re sure it should be able to work, try restarting the pc after you connect the monitor, it should open a popup and ask what you want to do.
3: If not try updating your drivers and repeat step 2.
As for the tv as a monitor, most digital tv's are able to do that, yes.
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
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.
