I have been trying to connect my laptop to my external display. I have plugged it in, changed the driver, and it is still not being detected. as far as the display name goes, it has a code on the back (not sure if this is the legit name of it), but the number is E176FPf. The laptop has an NVidia Quadro NVS 135M Graphics card. Thanks!
Additional info: I am running 12.04
