enable motherboard port for three monitor setup Leonovo H430

2013-02-15, 6:32 AM



I have a Lenovo H430 running windows 7 home prem 64-bit w/ 8 GB RAM and an Nvidia GeForce GT 620 2 GB video card. I have two monitors hooked up to the GeForce and a third hooked up to the motherboard port.


I have gone into the BIOS and I have three choices - Auto, PCIe and Integrated. I have tried all three and I can't get my third monitor fired up. I bought this computer and the video card only about six months ago. I'd hate to have to go out and spent money on another card with three ports. Please advise.

hi dmille,


Welcome to Lenovo Forums!


The GeForce GT 620 2 GB video card that is connected to your mainboard will automatically Disable the onboard Graphics.

If your Ge Force only have 2 ports for display then the only option you can have with making it work is to get a splitter like this, This will only clone what's on the other VGA display


But if your really intend to have Three Display with extended Settings, You are really need a Three Port Graphics Card.


Hope this helps,
