I have a new M92p Tiny (2121A4U) that was purchased to take advantage of the 3 native independent displays. Additionally the DisplayPort to Dual-DisplayPort Adapter (0B47092) was purchased to facilitate this as I was told that is what i needed.
So far, I can get either cloned or stretched desktop on the two DP monitors, but NOT extended/independent displays. I called Lenovo Support and after walking them through their own product and what their marketing department is saying exists, was told that the Intel HD 2500 card doesn't work for this. According to the PSREF (pg 161), this DOES work.
One would think it'd be simple, but so far . . nothing. I've updated all drivers and BIOS, downloaded and installed the Mosaic driver and such, but still . . . no change.
So, does this work? Or not? And if so, how do you go about doing it?
Thanks in advance!

Sorry something feel on my keyboard when i went out of the office momentarily.
What i was saying is that you mentioned:
I can get either cloned or stretched desktop on the two DP monitors, but NOT extended/independent displays.
When you say stretched desktop do you mean, that the two external screens display the same thing.
Also, how are you connecting the third LCD? is it through Displayport or VGA?
Also which three screens model are you using?
Is the two external LCD connected to the Displayport splitter the same or different?

No worries, just wasn't sure what it meant, lol.
No, stretched means that taskbar and apps stretch across two of the monitors and "center" of any app or desktop on those two is between the two monitors. The third, connected to the VGA port, worked as an independent desktop.
Not sure on the monitors exactly, but was told that two (both on the DP) were the same.
Does the splitter work in extended/independent mode or is there another DP supposed to be on the machine? Was lead to believe by my distrib that the splitter was the way to achieve that.
