I would like to take a moment and thank you for using this forum, it is a great place to find answers.
As I understand you want information on connecting a monitor to your laptop,
Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, however, to provide an accurate resolution, I need a few more details:
Is this a single monitor to your laptop or are you looking to connect two monitor?
While you respond to that, here's what you need to know:
There are two types of video transfer methods: Digital and Analog. If you try to connect a digital connector to an analog port or vice versa, you will not be able to view video. Also, if you attempt to play protected high-definition digital content, such as Blu-ray movies, over an analog connection, you will probably get an error message or the movie will play at lower quality resolutions.
