Upgrading the video card on a T61

Is it possible to upgrade the VGA card in my T61 to another card?  I've got the discrete nVidia Quadro 140M now, and it's a good card for what I do, but I'm looking to get rid of my desktop and without an s-video or DVI port on my T61 I can't hook it up to my 65" DLP HDTV.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

no everything is soldered on, so you are stuck with what you have. If you want DVI output, it is easily done using an advanced mini-dock, which have most of the outputs you want.

If I had DVI I'd be fine.  The only output I've got is VGA

There is a line of T series that offer both DVI and VGA ports.

There is? Have I missed something somewhere?

The T61 6460A18 have the DMS-59 port, which allows either VGA or DVI outputs.

@wjli2
Unfortunately I am unable to find any evidence to support your claim. All the information I can find indicates that the 6460 (incl. A18) has a DB-15 (VGA) monitor port.
In the interest of accuracy, it would be very useful to see a Lenovo document which proves me to be sorely mistaken.

Re: Upgrading the video card on a T61

Interesting!

 

According to Graphics Subsystem it has a DMS-59, but according to Planar Expansion Port Type it has External Display (VGA).

 

The 7663-BV2 has mainboard FRU Nr. 42W7867 as does the 7664-R6G which only has VGA. That suggests to me that an internal connection is being referred to = there is no currently available TP on the market with a direct digital video port.
