It appears from the spec it has a DVI output, if this is the case and your external monitor hasn't got DVI then you will need a convertor like this click here if I got the spec right you have the connector you can see on the left, the gold coloured one is a DVI output. You just plug this adaptor on the back of your notebook and then connect the monitor to it.
