SL510 - 2 external DVI monitors - is it possible?

2012-12-03, 10:41 AM

Hi,

 

 is there any way to use 2 external DVI monitors? Is the graphic card capable of it? Or can I replace the graphic card to enable it (I don't think so)? Would USB 2.0 to DVI adapters work?

 

Thank you for every response.

 

My notebook:

ThinkPad SL510,

Mobile Intel(R) 45 Express Chipset Family

3GB RAM

Win 7 Pro 32 bit

you would need to connect one of the DVI monitors using a HDMI2DVI converter cable or adapter head, then the second dvi monitors using usb 2dvi converter.
