Multiple Monitors with L430

2017-07-28, 0:40 AM

Hello Lenovo Community and Support,

 

I got a L430 Thinkpad with an Intel 4000 graphics card. 

Now I want to connect 3 independent monitors to the laptop. I got 3 HP monitors (ZR22W) with DP, DVI and VGA port.  I know the l430 got an mini display and VGA port. 

 

So how would it be possible to connect those 3 HP monitors ? What hardware (docking station, adapter ...) will I need to buy? 

 

Thanks for your help!

Hi Maxims,


Warm Greetings & welcome to Lenovo Community, happy to have you here.

As I understand that you have query regarding using Triple Monitors in your ThinkPad L430.

In order to achieve this you need to use the system with ThinkPad Basic USB 3.0 dock 

 

I hope the above information helped you.

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

 

Regards,
Prabhansh

As far as I can see there are two versions of the ThinkPad USB 3.0 dock. 

- The Basic (https://www.amazon.de/LENOVO-ThinkPad-Basic-inkl-Netzteil/dp/B00FTV4EIO)

- 0A33971 (https://www.amazon.de/Lenovo-0A33971-ThinkPad-Dockingstation-schwarz/dp/B008C4LDES)

 

The Basic one you send me only got one DVI Port, the 0A33971 version got two DVI port.

 

So wouldn't I need to get the 0A33971 version ? And even if I buy the 0A33971 won't I be limited to two external monitors?

As I said I got 3 HP monitors I want to connect.

Yes, you can use 0A33971 just use two DVI ports from the dock & one VGA port of your laptop for triple configuration of Display.
