Re: Dual Screen setup with laptop

As you need to connect two external monitor with your IdeaPad U400. You can connect the external Monitor via HDMI port, if it is available in your system.


Alternatively, you will need to create a two monitor connection via the USB input with a VGA to USB conversion cable, you can purchase these cables at any local computer store. And able this feature in your system.



Thanks  & Regards,
