How do i extend my Dell latitude D630 nvidia quadro nvs 135m on a tv monitor? I have purchased the Rosewill 15 ft. VGA / SVGA Male to Male Cable w/ 3.5mm Stereo Audio Cable Model RCW-H9023 The tv screen view is very dark and small. I have a Sony Bravia 46" HD TV. I am confused on the setup and resolution settings. Thanks for anyone that can help.

The information below is from the link at the bottom. You need to set the resolution and aspect ratio to the numbers below for best results.

· Aspect Ratio : 16:9
· Display Resolution : Full HD 1080(1920x1080)

I don't need the specs of my TV, but rather the directions on how to connect my Dell latitude D630 laptop to my TV using the above cables mentioned. Need to know what settings I need to set to the laptop AND the TV in order to use the tv screen as my laptop monitor. My laptop has nvidia quadro nvs 135m graphics.

I told you the settings. Set to 1920 x 1080

You need to consult your manual. See page 46 to 48 of the guide below for instructions.

In "display properties" on laptop, it doesn't have the same resolution options to set both 1 and 2 monitors to match each other. (exact same resolutions) Thanks for the link,looks like it will be very helpful.

Many laptops will not allow independent setting of resolutions. This is a product of the integrated graphics properties.

Make sure you are using the latest graphics drivers for your laptop that is supplied by Dell.

Tried the instructions according to the manual site you gave me. The tv screen is still very dark. When playing a youtube video on laptop and I toggle the Fn>F8 key, it won't show on the TV screen. Is it because the TV is HD and the laptop only has the Integrated Nvidia Quadro nvs 135m grahics?

As the guide states, use only settings that your graphics cards can support. I don't mess with utube so I can't say for sure, but I doubt anything there is 1080 or even 720, which are considered HD quality.

Does the TV work fine when used as a stand alone TV?

Are you using a long cable between the laptop and the TV or just the standard length?

TV works great and I am using the Rosewill 15 ft. VGA / SVGA Male to Male Cable w/ 3.5mm Stereo Audio Cable Model RCW-H9023 I don't know the the graphics that the integrated nvidia quadro nvs 135m supports on this laptop. I do know that while trying to manually set the laptop resolutions that I got a pop up that said it works best with a resolution set at 1280 by 800 with 60 HTZ refresh rate. Should I figure out how to set my HDTV resolution settings to match the laptop?

I have 2 options in "display settings" on my laptop...Monitor 1 is "1.(multiple monitors) on NVIDIA Quadro NVS 135M" or "2. Default Monitor on NVIDIA Quadro NVS 135M" I set it to "1. (multiple monitors) on NVIDIA Quadro NVS 135M" resolution 1280 by 800 (thats the highest setting available) and on the 2 monitor icon I set to "2. Default Monitor on NVIDIA Quadro NVS 135M resolution 1920 by 1440 and check the box that says "Extend my Windows desktop to this monitor" Both are set at 32 bit color. I haven't went into the display settings on the HDTV panel on my TV.

I don't have "independent" as an option. Sheathing reads "E119922 9U AWM 2919 80*C 30V VW-1 Low voltage computer cable copartner.

Read the tech specs in the link below. According to the specs the chip can display up to 2048 x 1536 when using analog (SVGA).

You may need to update your graphics drivers. Get them from the second link below.

Make sure your WinXP installation is fully up to date with SP3 and any updates after that.

The problem is the weak graphics in your laptop. Sorry you couldn't get it working correctly.

Did you try using the settings for the TV after you have a picture on the TV from the laptop?

Perhaps after you clone the laptop native resolution you can use zoom or some other setting using the TV settings which are independent of the computer. May distort the image if it works at all.
