I have a Philips X57 laptop and need to connect it to an external monitor, but the laptop doesn't come with any standard VGA connectors but does have 2 connections that look like it could be to do with external monitor but not sure.

I supplied two photos of the connectors.

Are any of them for connecting an external monitor and what type of cable do i need to do this.
