Laptop is dell xps 15.  It has 1920 x 1080 resolution.  I connect laptop to an external monitor that is 1920 x 1200 resolution but this monitor no longer works.
 
 
I was able to find a used monitor that someone is willing to sell and its called 
 
 
Samsung SyncMaster T240HD
 
 
 
I checked it out and it does have 1920 x 1200 resolution.  Also it is apparently a tv as well but you can use it as a monitor.  i checked online and this monitor is very old... made in 2008 or so.
 
 
But will this monitor/tv work fine as a primary monitor at 1920 x 1200 resolution?  Reason i ask is because i cannot find a monitor with this resolution where im located at.  Most monitors are 1920 x 1080 here.

What are you trying to do?  If you're duplicating the displays you need to use the lowest supported resolution.  If you're extending the desktop you should be able to set each monitor to the correct resolution.

Extended display.  Want 1920 x 1200 on my external monitor.  Of course my laptop which display is 1920 x 1080... i want it at that since thats the preferred and max resolution.

Try for awhile 1366 x 768 on the external monitor.  Then, creep upwards on the resolution slider as the display is what you want.  Earlier, I was able to have my laptops and external monitor "match" -- I never tried extended, only duplicate.
