Connect VA1912w Monitor with DELL Laptop

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.

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.

How can I check my dell d820 screen? It stopped working

Hi, first:
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,
next step:
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
best regards

My Dell Latitude D820 has many problems.... The biggest one is that I came home from work to turn it on, and the screen is black... When it turns on, it is completely white. I am so upset! I just got this...

Screen issue:
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 old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's 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. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

Laptop hot:

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.

I have a laptop HP pavillion dv6000 with Nvidia 8600 M GS videocard. When I tried to connect it to TV with Svideo cable it is not Identifying the TV as second monitor.


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.

Revert back for clarifications.

Multiple monitor problem

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.

I hope this helps,

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

Cannot display anything at all,sounds it is working but, cannot dispaly boot screen and rest???

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.
