I have a Dell Flatscreen monitor, Model # 1908FP. I am using the DVI cable (white) instead of the VGA (blue). My Dell Insprion 530s came with a DVI card, so i am using it straight with no adaptors (DVI to VGA).

Same question is for my Laptop, i have a Dell Insprion 1520.

There are no HDMI or Hi-Def Composite (Red, Green, Blue) ports. Just the DVI and the VGA.

If i download a HD Video, how will i know if i cant watch it in Full HD format or just standard format?

That really wasnt what i am looking for.

Is there a way to phyiscally tell if my monintor is HD or not?

Would it be best to try and download a HD video and see how it comes out?
