Sounds like an unsupported resolution range issue. What resolution does the laptop/monitor have?

What monitor is being used?  Is it the same one in your other question?  http://www.experts-exchange.com/Hardware/Components/Video_Cards/Q_24342769.html

2560 x 1600, 32-bit color

Does the machine have the same resolution available? Do they both support widescreen, etc.?

yes, they support wide screens - earlier 30 inch was tested and worked fine with 2560 * 1600 resolutions..
Now issue occurs with 40 inch Samsung Monitor using VGA
Not sure what the Error 0033 means ??? Pl advise
I am guessing its the limitation  or do we have any alternatives to make it work ..

Does this mean you tried another port on the video card, such as DVI or HDMI?  You need to narrow down whether it's the VGA port on the Samsung or the VGA port on the video card, so try connecting a different monitor to it.

Monitor self test passes on both the ports , problem occurs with erro code 0033 only if u hook up monitor using DVI to VGA Convertor & connecting the Tv using VGA Cable

ATI 4850 - card has dual DVI ports & no VGA Ports  -

Tried connecting 30 inch Panasonic - works gr8 at resolution of 2560 * 1600 with DVI

That sounds like the video card is working, then.  Can you hook up a straight VGA video card using a laptop or other machine to test the VGA port of the Samsung?  Use a standard resolution like 1280x1024.  What Samsung monitor is this?  Is it limited to HDTV resolutions? (eg, 1920x1080)

Yes thats exactly what I did, connected a laptop - worked gr8 - Ports proves to be fine
it is Samsung 40 inch  with TV  connectors : HDMI & VGA, trying to connect DVI-VGA Convertor where TV has VGA
Tv has a resolution of 1024 * 768
Monitor /TV works fine with DVI alone  
I guess I can now narrow down it to Monitor firmware, will look for any firmware from vendor

If it works fine with the DVI, and it works fine with a straight VGA connection, you may be looking at a problem with the converter, not the monitor.

You sent the same resolution to the Samsung using the XPS 435 MT with the DVI->VGA converter as you did with the laptop?  Just wanted to make sure the resolution wasn't causing it.

Converters are fairly simple devices with no electronics, so they are not likely to fail, though it's remotely possible.
