Attach two external monitors. on U31-70 Laptop (Lenovo) Machine Type: 80M5,

I have looked and tried a number of solutions but have not found one yet. I want to attach two external monitors. They vary in resolution, my laptop has 1 HDMI connection and two USB III and 1 USB II connection. I have two DVI connected monitors. My HTMI connected monitor works fine. but I want two monitors running. The laptop has a NVIDIA GeForce 920M graphics card. I'd like to try to do this without buying a fancy external device which says it can drive multiple monitors. I think this card will drive two monitors.

Hi globe_traveller,

 

Yes the graphics card should be able to handle more than one monitor, Due to the design and configuration of the Laptop you will oonly be able to connect one external device.

 

Hope this help you and let us know how you get on

Sorry, the response is unclear, you say Yes the graphics card should be able to handle more than one monitor, Due to the design and configuration of the Laptop you will only be able to connect one external device. So are you saying that  I can or cannot.  Can i not use an external device to connect two external monitors, one via  the HTMI and another via add-on device connected to usb III connector that drives either a DVI, HTMI or VGA.
