T440p Connecting 3 Monitors

Q: T440p Connecting 3 Monitors

Hi, I have a T440p thinkpad with a docking station. I am able to display 2 monitors fine (HP L2245wg). I have recently acquired a 3rd monitor (Dell P2214H) and would like to set it up. I have the DVI and VGA in the HP monitors and an SD port cable in the new monitor. However, when all 3 are plugged in, the DVI HP monitor fails to display anything. I went into the display settings on my laptop and it is reading the monitor is connected but not displaying anything. Am I missing a driver? Or are these monitors/laptops just not capable of displaying 3 monitors? If you could let me know I would very much appreciate it. Thanks

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

hi, i have an all in 1 HD pavilion, with connectivity of 2x USB 2.0, 2x USB 3.0, Ethernet, HDMI, USB Type-C. i have used a vga to usb adapter for the third, however the screen display is made smaller than the actual monitor. i want to connect a forth but using the third monitors adapter, it does the same to the 4th screen dropping res to 800 and detecting the screen and being incredibly small. how do i fix this issue with the adapter, stopping the screen being made smaller? is it that mine is faulty and i should 2 new ones (for the 3rd and 4th) or is there another solution?

I have tried searching for so long and would appreciate any ideas, thank you so much.

I use my computer for a lot of things... I'm in college as an engineer. I'm a quadriplegic and don't have use of my fingers, so instead of sifting through packets of papers, I look through things in PDF form. This gets pretty tedious when I'm trying to write a paper and read the packet at the same time.

Anyway, I used to be a Mac user and I know you can connect to monitors to your computer so you have double the screen space. How easy is it to do with Windows XP? If you can do it, how exactly does it work? If there are two screens side-by-side, do they work independently or together? For example, if I maximized a window, would it take up both monitors or just one?

I'm just curious about this, and I was wondering how tough it would be if I decided to go through with it.

I have tested it on the old HP and it does work, but for some reason I cannot get it to work on the beatsaudio. Is there specific instructions for the beats audio?  It registers as "3.

Not directly. You could have one monitor connected to the HDMI port, and then use 2 USB 3.0 to HDMI adapters. Not sure what kind of performance you would get with all that video output. But you could extend the desktop across all 3 external monitors.   http://www.amazon.com/HDE-SuperSpeed-Adapter-Definition-Converter/dp/B017OE2JSK/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&q... If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

To connect 2 monitors, do I connect a cable with a male DVI-D port at one end, the cable then splits into 2 cables, each with a male DVI-D connector?

Thanks for your help.

A:Solved: Connecting 2 monitors

If you use a splitter all it is going to do is send the same image to both screens (I assume you do not want this).
You would have to use the DVI along with one of the other plugs (the VGA or HDMI). I would suggest just getting an HDMI to DVI adapter if nether display supports HDMI, so that you will have two DVI plugs and will not have to use VGA which will be reduced quality.

This desktop is supposed to support 2 monitors.  It has 1 VGA port and 1 DVI port.  I connected the 2nd monitor with a VGA cable via the DVI port with a DVI-D adapter and am getting the message from the desktop "None Detected" and the monitor displays "No Cable Connected" even though the DVI-D adapter is in place and I made sure it's seated properly and the monitor is powered.  The VGA output on the desktop works fine with or without the 2nd monitor connected. There is no HDMI output on the desktop. Do I need to download a new Win 10 driver for the 2nd monitor to work?  Obviously there is no signal coming from the DVI output as neither the monitor or the desktop are detecting each other.  Any suggestions as to how I can get the 2nd monitor/port to work? I found a link related to this topic on this board but get a "404 not found" error when I click on it.

Each monitor is a bit older and I have a DVI-HDMI adapter connected to each, an HDMI cable then running from those to my laptop. However my laptop only has one HDMI port, thus only one monitor can connect.

Hi,
I currently have 2 monitors connected to my xfx ATI 5450 (has 3 ports: 1 DVI, 1 VGA and 1 HDMI however the box says it also supports displayPort so i presume that the HDMI is also the DP). I am currently using a vga and dvi port on this card and would like to connect another vga monitor.
I currently have 1 VGA female to DVI male converter. Would i be able to set it up as such:
1 DVI male from HD monitor going to DVI port in card
1 VGA male from monitor going to VGA port in card
1 VGA male converted to DVI which is then plugged into another converter from DVI to HDMI which is then plugged in the HDMI port in the card.

Hi Arterca, and welcome to TSG.

You first need to check the product specifications of your all-in-one PC to see if it specifically has an HDMI Input connector. Most computers only have HDMI Outputs, but some with HDMI inputs do exist.

No matter how flashy and improved windows gets, it always contains the same amount of Microsoft stupidity that I know will never disappear from the windows platform.

I have an HP laptop with the standard built in Intel graphics card. I always connect my laptop to one of my LCD monitors or lately my plasma TV. Its great. but these two problems really kill my mood:

1- when I connect them it often times forgets what my previous settings were (Second monitor set as primary, not mirrored) so i have to always go into settings and change that. For weeks it might remember those settings then out of the blue it reverses them so that the laptop monitor is actually hte primary while the TV is the secondary, or isnt checked as "Attached". What is this? In 2008 Microsoft still can't get something like this right. On one of the monitors it forgets the resolution i set it to so I have to keep resetting it.

2- When I unplug the external monitor from the laptop sometimes, like right now, the task bar becomes invisible (except for the start menu button) so the only way for me to figure out where the icons in the tray are is by mouseovering them. totally retarded. I have to restart to fix this.
What pisses me off the most is concern #1. it should remember what the settings are without contantly reversing them or worse, me having to go into settings and actually tell it that there i another monitor connected.

I currently have a Yoga 2 Pro laptop that has Bluetooth, 2 USB ports, 1 micro HDMI port, and a 3200x1800 resolution.

I want to connect it to a pair of desktop monitors (lower resolution) and a wired USB keyboard as effortlessly as possible (since I will be moving the laptop back and forth a lot). What hardware is needed to accomplish this?

Let's say I wanted to connect it to this EVGA dual-monitor stand (haven't purchased it yet), which appears to use two DVI inputs, would I need some dual DVI into HDMI adapter (if such a thing even exists)? Or would I be better off just trying to connect it to a laptop docking station?

If I don't go the docking station route, I would like to connect to my wired/USB keyboard via Bluetooth if possible. Just googling around came up with a few USB -> Bluetooth adapters (1, 2). Does anyone have any experience with these or better recommendations?

Lastly, will jumping from 3200x1800 resolution to something like two 1400X900 resolutions cause any issues? I don't care if the picture quality is lower on the monitors, but I do want to make sure they're working full-screen.

I have no experience connecting a laptop to normal desktop hardware in this way so I'd really appreciate any input or suggestions. If you have any hardware recommendations (including a docking station or better dual-monitor setup), I'd love to hear them. Thank you.
 

A:Solved: Connecting laptop to external monitors/keyboard

Take a look at Lenovo's USB 3.0 docks here, type your model in to get the recommended ones: http://shop.lenovo.com/ca/en/accessories/dock-port-replicators/
One USB cable will connect everything back to the Yoga.

The converting to Bluetooth makes no sense, you're just adding more devices and hassle. A simple USB hub would be better if you didn't go for a full dock. Connect the wired mouse and keyboard to the USB dock or buy a new Bluetooth keyboard/mouse.

Once you undock the Yoga's screen should kick back in and work at it's supported resolution.

Precision 4800  is docked with Dell E-Port replicator.
Precision M4800 has the following Display Adapters - Intel HD 4600 & nVidia Quadro K1100M
M1 shows 2560x1600, but the max resolution on M2 is 1920x1080.
How do I get both monitors to run at 2K resolutions?
This KB article describes the multiple monitor setup options, but it does not list the max resolutions supported for each option.
any help is appreciated.
thanks!

I'm trying to conect 2 external monitors, so I would have 3 displays total including the built in display. Laptop specs:Processor: Intel Core i3 (3rd gen)GPU: Intel HD Graphics 4000Built-in display connector type: LVDSDisplay ports: 1 x VGA; 1 x HDMI; 2 x USB 3.0Windows 10According to Intel this config is supported for my hardwarehttps://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000025673/graphics-drivers.html But, I can't get it to work with 3 displays. Only 2 displays work at any given time. Any combo of 2 displays is working, like built-in display + monitor 1 or monitor 2 + monitor 1, but a 3rd display won't connect.So far, I updated monitor drivers and intel driver. I tried dragging and changing monitors in display setting and changing my main monitor box. There was an old post from tech support about this suggestiong it can be done, but it was never resolved. I read the links below, but got nowhere:---------------------------------------------From tech support:The Lenovo G580 runs on the  Intel® H76 Express Chipset as stated on this pdf data sheetwhich is capable of dual display only. Triple display maybe possible if you have a 3rd Gen CPU and Intel HD Graphics 4000. Check these articles:Intel Graphics Multiple Displays FAQHow to enable 3-Display mode

Greetings,
I have a Dell 7720 (inspiron 17R SE) laptop and I have it currently working with a u2715h Dell monitor in 1440p resolution via HDMI (even though I read in many places that such a setup with HDMI can only do 1080p!). Anyway, I'd like to know what's the best way to connect my laptop to two u2715h monitors in extended mode in 1440p (if that's possible). I'm fine with not using the laptop screen. The graphics card I have is GT650m, it has an hdmi and a vga output..

A:Connecting Inspiron 7720 laptop to two 1440p monitors

Just came across this old post. What I ended up doing is connect one monitor in 1440p through the HDMI port and to the other one in 1080p using the VGA port and a VGA-to-HDMI adapter that I got off of Amazon. I wasn't able to get a 1440p resolution out of the VGA port unfortunately.

Hey Guys,

Bought two new QNIX 2710's and cant seem to get both to display with my EVGA 04G-P4-3975-KR GeForce GTX 970 SSC ACX 2.0+ 4 Graphics card. I never had an issue with my two samsungs and even a third tablet monitor to boot, but these two new ones dont work together but only the one which is hooked up to the DVI (and only DVI port available) on the card.

Ive tried both display port and HDMI adaptors what connect with a DVI cable and both are No go's. Getting frustrated here, and am new to this brand of monitors....will a dual dvi splitter cable work? Any solutions for this newbie would be much appreciated! Thanks!
