Dual monitor with docking station type 2504

2008-10-29, 21:45 PM

Does anyone know how I can connect a second monitor to my docking station without having to purchase any additional hardware? The type of docking station is 2504, with an R60 ThinkPad. I thought I would be able to connect the second monitor directly to the laptops VGA port on the side while docked, but that doesn't seem to work.

Any ideas???

unless your R60 use an ATI card rather than the GMA 950 Intel graphics card, you wouldn't able to use the additional DVI port on the dock or the VGA port on your laptop. The only real solution is for you to use an USB 2.0 Enhanced Port Replicator to allow you to connect a second VGA connector LCD to.
