Default Closing Lid -> Switch to external Monitor and change resolution?

hello,
i'm searching for a way to let my laptop (hp 8510w) switch to monitor and set another resolution, when closing the lid (or by pressing fn + f4 videoswitch). the laptop has an nvidia quadro card build in. i experiemented with xrandr and nvidia-settings (command line) and acpi-support with no solution. so does anyone have any ideas how to solve this problem? thank you a lot!

I've mapped disper to Fn-F5 here (thinkpad R61), works like a charm. Just search the forum here for disper, you will find what you are looking for.
