Samsung 931BW 19'' Wide-Few Questions for the daring

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Right here's the low down.

Looking at buying Samsung 931 19'' Wide Screen monitor. I want to be able to hook my laptop up to the monitor but i have noticed that the 2 video inputs on the monitor are Analog RGB and DVI. My laptop only has VGA so is it possible to hook the two up with VGA??????

Thanks

Yeah, just get a DVI-to-VGA adapter for your video card. Actually, the card should have came with one.
