Dell :: Two External Monitors On XPS Notebook Possible?

Dec 28, 2009

I have a new XPS 1640 Dell notebook with ATI Mobility RADEON M96XT 1GB video.

I am using an external 24 in (1920 x 1200 res.) monitor through VGA port.

The notebook has additional HDMI and DisplayPort.

I'd like to know if it is possible to connect a second external monitor. It would be 17 in (1280 x 1024) used as extended desktop, not mirrored. The monitor has DVI port as well as VGA.

If it is possible, which cable should I use? I assume DisplayPort might be better than HDMI. Is there a such cable that converts DisplayPort to DVI?

Dell :: 1730 With 2 External Monitors

Jan 30, 2008

Does anyone have a solution for 2 external monitors running 1920x1200 with the 1730?

I know there are docking stations (USB & Express Card) that have video with a max of 1600x1200.
There are also just plain USB to DVI adaptors but are also limited to 1600x1200.

Has anyone tested a cable like this...

Dell XPS 12 :: Run 2 External Monitors At 2560x1440

Jan 10, 2014

Is it possible to run 2 external monitors at 2560x1440 off the DELL XPS12. I understand there is only 1 display port, but can you use adapters or a docking station to run 2 monitors at that resolution...?

side question: can you do this with the Dell XPS 13

Ps: latest models with HD4400

Dell :: External Monitors For Inspiron 8200/Dimension 4600

Dec 7, 2008

I'm a bit embarrassed to admit to spending 4 or so hours with 4 Dell support fellows (3 chat/1 phone) fiddling with my Inspiron 8200 attempting to connect the Dimension 4600's 1901FP monitor...with no success. After (I've lost count) x number restarts/restores it's a wonder the 8200 seems to be back to where I/we started earlier today
.
1. I would still like to add an external 1600x1200 monitor to the 8200 notebook. The Dell people say it's a no go--maybe with a lower res monitor? The notebook is used by Marilyn (spouse) who does two things: writes a few notes and edits digital photos.

2. As for myself I'd like to exchange the 19" 1901FT for a bit larger (say 23-24" monitor with maybe a bit higher res (for photo editing work.) I've had my eyes on a Samsung 2343 BWX ..with a 2048x1152 resolution...leaving me to wonder if the Dimension 4600 will support it? (Or if I'd best invest in a z590 series Sony Vaio notebook that I can take to the field/drive the Samsung 2343 at home...)

I just ordered a new Dell XPS M1330 with the Intel X3100 chipset and then I saw this:

My question: Does it matter what graphics chipset I have? Can I run 2 external monitors with the Intel chipset? If so, that would be very cool!

Even better would be this: I have two external monitors - both vga with no DVI (oh well). Can I get this working?

Acer :: Two External Monitors (1810 Timeline)

Mar 2, 2010

I am interested in buying an Acer 1810 Timeline, given all that I read in this forum. Just one brief question for those who own one:

The 1810 has both a HDMI as well as a VGA port. Is it possible to display onto *two* different external monitors, each one connected to one of these ports? (In thinkpads one can do this by switching off the internal LCD.)

Apple :: Macbook Pro 13 - Displayport - How Do I Connect To The External Monitors

Apr 1, 2010

I bought the Macbook Pro 13" on March 21st, couldn't wait for the refresh.

Now my question is, how do I connect to the external monitors, as in which Mini Displayport do I need to buy? I see a lot of displayports at Fry's for under $20 for Mac but don't know which part number exactly do I need for my MBP.

Another question is, I might want to get the Mini Displayport to DVI. Would DVI to HDMI work from the Apple Mini Displayport? Would DVI to VGA work from the Apple Mini Displayport also? I have alot of DVI to VGA/HDMI adapters so I was wondering would it work if I just bought the Mini Displayport to DVI.

Acer Aspire V7 582PG :: Can't Detect External Monitors

Sep 20, 2013

I recently bought an Aspire V7 582PG, put in a new SSD, and then installed Windows 8. The laptop works fine, except it can't detect external monitors (in Control Panel, I get "Didn't detect another display". I have tried with 2 monitors (different models) that are known to work, through both HDMI and VGA.
 
I thought it might be a driver issue. Device Manager > "Display adapters" shows "Microsoft Basic Display Adapter" and "NVidia GEForce GT 750M". Both drivers are up to date. "Monitors" shows "Generic PnP monitor", which is also up to date.
 
I then went to [URL] ...... to download the driver for my model. The only one that looked relevant was:
 
MonitorELANTECHHID Monitor Drivers1.1.5Installer here: [URL] .....
 
But when I unzip and run it, the installer window closes within a few seconds; I think it crashes rather than installing properly.

Jan 2, 2015

recently purchased an HP ENVY x360 - 15-u011dx Touch Laptop. Try to set up two external monitors using an HDMI splitter. I can "extend" the desktop, but both screens are showing the same image, which isn't what I want. Can i set up two external monitors with this laptop using a splitter (this was what I was told would work when I purchased the unit along with the two monitors.)  Previous laptops had HDMI and VGA ports allowing for two monitors.  This laptop (as well as most newer ones) no longer have a VGA port.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Dual External Monitors Without A Dock On T440p?

Mar 15, 2009

Is it possible to use two external monitors with my T440p (20AW-A08500) with Intel HD Graphics withou having to buy a dock? I normally use my laptop at home with the lid shut and two monitors attached.
 
I used to have X1 (still do - now up for sale) and that was happily connected to two monitors via HDMI and via a MiniDP to DVI adaptor.I wrongly assume when I bought the T440p that I would be able to somehow power my existing two monitors from the single MiniDP port.I have seen their is a Lenovo DisplayPort to DualDisplayPort adaptor - but this talks about ThinkCentre usage - no mention of Thinkpads. Plus the price of this adaptor is pretty steep.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Dual External Monitors Not Working On T420 With Mini Dock Series 3

Nov 29, 2011

I have a T420 that I'm using with a Mini Dock Series 3 - 90W 433710U docking station.  I'm trying to connect to two external monitors (both HP 1965's) using the DVI and VGA outputs on the docking station.  From the VGA output, I'm running a VGA (M) to DVI (M) into my monitor.  I can only get either the DVI or VGA outputted monitors to work by themselves, but not together.  When I connect both external displays, it will switch off one of the external monitors (the first one connected).     Both are verified working as external monitors with the T420, just not at the same time.  When using the DVI output, I can get dual monitors to work using the ThinkPad display as one monitor and the DVI-connected external monitor as the second.  Is there a way to connect to two external monitors from a T420 with a Mini Dock Series 3 - 90W 433710U docking station?  Or do you a multi-monitor adapater, such as an Cirago HDX3DV01 to do that?

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W540 - Ultra Dock Docking Station 170 Not Providing Any Signal To External Monitors

Sep 8, 2014

I am running a IBM Thinkpad W540 with a Lenovo Ultra Dock Docking Station 170 (Model 40A20170US). I have 3 Asus 23.6" LED HD Monitors (Model VN247HP). These monitors have a standard VGA connection and 2 HDMI ports, By default you are provided a VGA cable and a HDMI-DVI cable. When I plug these monitors into the Ultra Dock no signal is found(including the VGA).

When I plug into the direct VGA port on the laptop, the monitor gets signal. If I use a Mini-DP connection with a Mini-DP-DVI adapter I get signal just fine. If I plug my this monitor into my desktop under HDMI and DVI connections it works just fine.

I have gone into the bios and confirmed that under display the "Video Mode on Dock" is set to Advanced(I tried standard and it did not work any better).  I have the latest video drivers for the Intel HD graphics driver (10.18.10.3412) and the NVIDIA Quadro K1100M (9.18.13.4052). The USB ports work just fine, as does the power cable for the docking station. I tried applying the latest firmware update but the program runs and nothing happens. I checked for any other drivers that might have resolve the issue but have not had any luck.

Dell :: 17'' FHD Monitors *ever* Be Available Again?

Apr 27, 2010

HP - No.
Dell - No.
Acer - No.
Asus - No (well, except for G73).
Toshiba - No.
Sony - No.

All are selling 1600x900 in 17" laptops. What's up with that? FHD is available in the 16s and 15s! It's bad enough I have to lose 10% of my screen real estate by going from 1920x1200 to 1920x1080 but down further to 1600x900? Not going to happen! Is there only one plant in the world making these things? Did it burn down or something?

Dell :: Dual Monitors On An E5500 With Onboard Graphics Card

For some reason I can't search or I would have done that first so I apologize if this has been beaten to death. I placed an order for a Latitude E5500 with 4G of memory and the 2.4g processor.

One question that I asked of the online chat people was if it would support a dual monitor set up with the onboard gpu (I didn't have an option for an upgrade on the 5500).

The first guy said no, my salesperson on the phone said yes, absolutely although unless I buy a dock one of the monitors would have to be my laptop lcd, and just to break the tie I asked another online sales person and he said absolutely not!

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Dual Monitors On T430 - No Signal

Dec 19, 2014

I know the Intel 4000 video can only handle dual video, but is there any way have both those streams on external monitors.  I have one that is extended and I would like to use another port to simply passthrough the interal display signal.  I am using the series 3 miniport plus which has two digital/dvi ports and a vga out.  In connecting to the second digital or the vga I get no signal.  Likewise with the side VGA on the PC.  I wouldn't even mind if the laptop display stayed lit as long as I could see it duplicated on a real monitor AND KEEP MY EXTENDED DESKTOP on another extenal monitor.
 
Seems like an obvious feature for a docking station.
