i have a T61p running winxp.
I want to connect my laptop(undocked) to a LCD monitor. Since i want to see more vibrant colors i would like to use dvi option of the monitor i bought.
Here is my question:
t61p does not have an individual dvi output. yet, I know that we can change some bios settings for dvi-d support.
1) Does dvi only work when laptop is docked? I am asking this because only the docking station has a dvi output.
2) If the answer to the first question is "No, you may still use DVI even if your laptop is undocked"
Can i get a digital signal from vga port of my laptop? Should i make a connection between vga port(from laptop) and dvi port (from monitor)? Can i get a digital output even if i make a connection between vga port(from laptop) and vga port (from monitor)?
Thanx for any kind of help...

I have a T61 and have a DVI - VGA cable attached to my Samsung P2770. I was wondering if the Lenovo USB-to-DVI Monitor Adapter would be an alternative to buying/using a docking station. I also would like to take advantage of the digital signal and higher screen resolution that my monitor can support rather than analog. Thank you. Vince.
