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!

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.

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