Dual monitor output on L560



I have an L560 with a VGA port and mini-DP port.  Can 2 external monitors be used with the L560 using both video ports?  I do not have a docking station available.

Re: Dual monitor output on L560

Hi Mike,


Welcome to Lenovo Community!


As I understand that you wanted to know the details regarding dual monitor connection on L560

This model supports up to 3 independent displays as this model is having Intel HD Graphics 510/520 depending upon MTM & you can use dual monitor using the above mentioned ports i.e., VGA & mini-DP easliy.


I hope the above information helps.

Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

Re: Dual monitor output on L560

Dear Prabhansh


Many thanks for your post. I have the same computer as Mike, and am trying to connect two monitors. I have a VGA output (L560 Laptop) to a VGA Input (1st BenQ Monitor), and DP Output (L560 Laptop) to HDMI Input (2nd BenQ Monitor).


Unfortunately, the second monitor doesn't display anything. If I press F7 there doesn't seem to be the option for 2 monitors - the extend option only displays on the laptop screen and VGA monitor).


Any help here would be much appreciated.


Many thanks
