tried plugging in a VGA cable into my 22" Samsung monitor. It worked, only the result was not stable, that is, every once in awhile it would switch to a different aspect ratio or number of pixels. Thus it would fit pretty well, then it might go to VGA mode or to overscan. (actually, I did this a few weeks ago).
I would use the HDMI port but the monitor doesn't have a HDMI input. I could do a HDMI-to DV-I cable route but that's expensive and I don't even know if it would help. (For some reason, most laptops have HDMI output but most monitors have DVI input).
Its a feature I might need one day and would like it working. Sometimes the native display gets a little hard to read, one shortcoming of the Toshiba A505 to my view.
Is anyone else trying this?
