Okay, i am using an HP laptop. It can connect externally to a monitor but only with vga. Now, i own a Samsung syncmaster 2493hm. It can be connected via, rgb/vga, dvi, and hdmi. 24inches. So, i have it connected using vga cable. Once i did this and adjusted settings to a style i liked......crash. I did this 5 times needing to reinstall the entire system 5 times from the start up screen using install as factory delivered. Now, i have come to the realization that the graphics card installed in this laptop is unupgradeable and unchangeable. Though i just don't believe that. The computer itself has the capabilities from what i can tell to do more if the graphics card was better. Now, the crazy thing about this is that i purchased Ascentive software that was intended for something entirely different and yet, i know seem to be having no problems at all. I'm using the monitor now actually. I just need help on figuring out this laptop and learn how to utilize my memory ram in a better more efficient way for the things i do. which is mainly sitting on the internet and doing nothing. I would like to get into gaming, but am afraid the first game i attempt to play with intense graphics will just tank my computer. I can add any details needed to help me upgrade, adjust, fix, or even tear it apart and add newer and better hardware. I just want to get more from this computer than i feel i actually am getting. Thank you.
