    Is it possible to use a stand alone Samsung 22" syncmaster 226 CW
    (resolution [email protected]) with a laptop with NVidia Geforce 8600M-GT card
    in it? (Acer Aspire 5920G)

    This video chipset is a recent release which includes support for
    DirectX 10. It would be unusual for this modern chipset to not support
    your external monitor. The simplest thing you can try is to take the
    laptop to a store that has one on display and ask then if you can plug
    the monitor into your laptop and verify that they work together. Bring
    an appropriate cable with you to make things easy.

    If the monitor is not correctly recognized by the laptop, you may need
    to load drivers that come with the monitor.
