I recently purchased a samsung 19" widescreen LCDT HD Ready tv, with a VGA cable connecter at the back.
I tested it out, connected my laptop to the tv, ran perfectly, as both a extended monitor and as the normal monitor.
After i while i wanted to watch sky on the new tv, so i removed the VGA cable from my laptop. i looked back at my laptop and it now only has two resolutions available 1024 by 768 800 by 600 Those are the only two dimensions available, but before, i had several different options. Im currently running the laptop on vista, and i want to set it back to the normal resolutions i had.

Re: limited monitor resolutions
By plugging into the tv you created an additional monitor profile. You will need to go to the resolution page and open the advanced button, from here set the monitor to the laptop screen versus the vga tv. There is also a troubleshoot button that can be useful.

There are two options available with this laptop. Unfortunatley you will not be able to produce a High Definition picture, but nether the less it is possible to connect it to a HD TV.
The connections available are;
1x VGA - You will need a VGA Cable (as long as your HD TV has a VGA/PC input) cheapest found on Ebay. There is also a VGA to HDMI cable. Still wont be HD but an alternative to think about.
1x S-Video (TV-Out) - You will need a S-Video Cable (make sure HD TV has this input) also cheapest on Ebay.
IMake sure that you have the laptop for an VGA OUTPUT. When you toggle between the function keys. When your laptop LCD goes out it is in VGA OUT mode....when you toggle again it should be in LCD/VGA OUT (both TV and laptop should display). You need to set the TV to VGA mode as well...otherwise you might not get an output. If you still have a problem then test on a regular monitor to see if you are getting an output to the monitor
IF THIS HELPS PLEASE VOTE.....GOOD LUCK AND THANKS..
That will plug right in. Your existing monitor has a VGA connection, which matches what you have on this monitor (where it plugs in on the back of the computer you will find a blue connector). Just put this one in it's place.
The industry is moving to DVI, which is a long white connector, but monitors are still coming with the VGA connection anyway. This monitor is DVI capable which means it will be great for your next computer, but you will need to buy the DVI cable separately (not today, but when you eventually get a new computer).
The X1400 supports Full-HD resolution. Full-HD/True-hd (1920x1080)
The best output would be via DVI but you are limited with the VGA port.
I would purchase a Grand Hi-Wire PC to HDTV converter from www.globalcomputer.com. Item # G126-1036 @ $139.99
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe
use a vga to dvi or a vga to vga connector lead from the back of your notebook, to the tv dependong on your tv connection inputs, although you will only get 720i not 1080i as you will need a notebook with an hdmi port for that resolution.
You should be able to conect via an s video connection or a VGA to DVI/VGA.
You will need to right click on your desktop and the option to extend or clone your display should show, but you will need to go to your graphics card properties to see which resolutions it supports and match the same resolutions on your tv if it's HD ready.
If you have an older type tv then only s video will connect
