Not to side track this discussion, but no, regardless of the resolution that set doesn't have the refresh rate or input capability needed for 3D. Period.
Further, the point others are trying to make here is that your set isn't anywhere near as capable of displaying computer video formats as current HDTV's are. Computer video formats and HDTV video formats are different and not compatible with each other. In 2002 a VGA input on an HDTV was for video devices (read: set top boxes, DVR's, etc.) that had VGA output, not necessarily a computer. A current HDTV will have the same VGA connector but the input can be from any number of devices, both video and computer.
To really figure out your problem, you need to get the specific computer display format(s) the Mitsu is capable of (which is most likely 1920x1080 interlaced), and find a way to set the graphics card output of your computer to that specific requirement. Otherwise your wandering around in the dark. This is not an Intel issue or AMD issue; it's graphics card output and HDTV input compatibility.
As noted, another way (maybe) is to get a component video card for the computer, but the output would have to conform to video formats. I don't know if component video cards do or not. EDIT: Since you have a laptop, this is a moot point.
